savor the flavor: the 12¢ solo supper

June 5, 2013

how often do i eat dinner at midnight?
i dont mean the infamous midnight snack
i mean dinner
soggy noodles in powder flavored water
the exotic taste of sweaty arm…

though i miss my family
they slumber sweetly
transmitting peace to me through the walls
and i savor the flavor of silence
made more delicious by its paucity

i almost hit a rabbit on the way home from work
as i swerved i thought
“silly rabbit, sticks to my treads”
and imagined some demented breakfast cereal
then i laughed and was glad i didnt kill the rabbit.
though it could have added nutrients and been tasty:

Treads Cereal “Now with less fur!”
part of this unbalanced breakfast
Aspartame, Androgenic Alopecia, Cyanide, Dicalcium Phosphate, Various Roadkill and Other Unnatural and Artificial Flavor, Acne, Thiamin non compos mentis Mononitrate, Acid, Niacinamide, Splinters, Nitrous Oxide, B-6 (Battleship Sunk), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Zuul and Vinz Clortho, Riboflavin, Wheat Shaft, Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Napalm, Mixed Pterodactyls and PVC Added to Preserve Freshness.
May contain traces of animal nuts.

    Love it! Read it to my husband, we cracked up for two reasons. One because your way with words is a riot, two, can you believe I was actually craving Ramen, and we had that for supper? My poor husband after a hard day at work asked what was for supper, and I told him, his face fell. I suppose I have to cook a nice meal tomorrow to make up for the “exotic taste of sweaty arm” that I served tonight that I just chased with two Rolaids. Thanks for the great laugh!

      This is one of the funnest replies I have ever received!
      Thanks for that – and as for ramen (I actually really like it); I will probably eat it tonight myself as a result of this exchange!
