Secret Ingredient

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2018 April PAD Challenge – Day 1
Write a secret poem.

What made her chopped liver the best,
did fried onions give it that zest?
I remember the grinder she pressed
cooked liver through with finesse.
For many years I was clueless,
and then one day she confessed
after keeping it close to her vest,
secret ingredient–seltzer. Who would have guessed?


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
