extra flavour

Poem #5 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction

oh pilgrim
it is easy to fall into high drama

sometimes the things
that happen
seem to be without precedent
and nothing like any thing
that has gone before

this is seduction

sometimes it seems critical
to add such an ingredient
rolled fine between fingertips
to the dish
that is a life

be sure
when you taste
your tongue detects the base stock
that lies beneath the spices
