Some poetry

Ode to Iku
Oh Iku, food bastion of vegans and other herbal types
divine rice balls, tofu pockets of goodness
salad dressing I wish to bathe in
but WHY did I ever think a brown lentil casserole
would do anything else but wreak havoc on my bowels
and create my own personal ozone hole
quietly proud of volume and smell
as cramping pains

slowly subside
over 24 hours later.
