Written for: Poetic Asides November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 29
Write a response poem. The poem can be a response to anything–a piece of news, some art, a famous (or not so famous) quotation, or whatever. However, I thought it might be a cool opportunity to respond to a poem that you’ve written this month. If both poems work, it could make an interesting dynamic to have two (or more) poems that interact with each other.
(In response to my poem for day 17, “What I Meant To say”)
Can it be the color that puts me off
when eating veggies like lima beans?
I think it is texture, mealy and soft
for limas, and slimy for okra, also green.
Unpalatable kale is an unwelcome cuisine.
Yet I love broccoli, peas, and sprouts,
so concerning color, I have my doubts.
