Food Heaven 

There are no farms,
bakeries, dairies, orchards,
or cheesemakers - the only way
to tell one blue
from another
is by texture, taste and smell.

There are no critics,
connoisseurs, or celebrity chefs
to sway my opinion;
and Iíve had all the time
and choice I need
to discover the foods I really like.

But more and more I found myself
returning to my motherís lentil soup,
a three-bean, wild boar stew
a lover once made for me,
a stone-baked pizzas
so many enjoyed, ...

But as these memories fade
I struggle to remember why
I like these foods,
and slowly
Iíve started to die again.
