One week later…

November 29, 2007

I spin the can
of mixed nuts
peering into a greasy
kaleidoscope –

not a cashew
to be found

only jordans,
filberts, and peas
in my disdain.

They are all
that remain

of the feast.

    This is a repost from last year.

    I f’ing hate that. I love cashews so much that I now only buy nuts that are all cashews. OK, sometimes I buy all almonds. Raw and unsalted. A poem about nuts, I love it!

    The oily tin is like a kaleidoscope, isn’t it?
    Cashews are so wonderful, my favorite, although i also enjoy the filberts.

    i like the way these remnants “tumble in [your] disdain”.

    I like how you can make the mundane so interestingly visual. A shared experience by many becomes poetry.

    Dreamsbyraul – raw and unsalted almonds (10/day) is allegedly the best way. For me a can of cashews ranks up there with a six pack of Sierra Nevada and a Don Tomas.

    Christine – I learned to appreciate the others but it was like being unable to learn piano from Herbie Hancock and settling for Local Hometown Piano Hero.

    Birdsword – I can also make the interesting mundane if you were to read my trash.

    Thanks you all for your comments and kind remarks.
