foodie poem #4

those of us who live alone talk out loud
to ourselves, come up with varied games
one of mine when the larder is bare yet
going to the store seems onerous is to
play freezer surprise select something
long frozen unmarked undated of course
defrost and see what leftover is for supper
yesterday’s did not look promising a sort
of grey sludge rather like pudding but
lumpily suspicious it proved to be thick
pea soup tasty with hunks of ham not all
choices are as lucky my criterion in this
game is would a soccer player in the andes
eat it my depression-child upbringing
makes the answer invariably yes
