The New Verse News have been kind enough to publish one of my poems online. You can read it here.
Piping hot, served on a big, silver platter
With pristine white linen in case it should splatter
Serving suggestion: try holding your nose
(It can be quite fragrant when fresh off the stove)
A gentle reminder – you may burn your tongue
On sauce with such condiments, thickened and mum
Though some find it bitter, you might like the taste
So try not to let what you’ve bought go to waste
It’s strange and exotic, the critics all say
But you ordered The Truth – it’s our dish of the day.
