How about
Fried mashed potato patty,
Fried beans and celery,
Poached pink Tasmanian salmon
repoached in soup de lettuce,
pea
and tahini?

Algorhythmic Rafa v.
blithe Roger is a
robot v. a careless

lushness in humans,

or mangoes, our dad
would wonder if it
would make a country
not worth fighting

There being no
nationwide norm,
most parts of China
boast
the finest expressions
of the female form.
