Hunger - Poem by Charlotte Ballard

I have found that
There are more things
To hunger for
Than quiche and
Dr. Pepper...
I dip a finger into
Shakespeare, and
Emily Dickinson,
While savoring the
Smells from
e.e. cumming's short
Cooked rhyme -
Donne, and Keats
Tantalize and tease-
Until the next meal
Is spread full
Before me.
