What I Ate Today
Porridge for breakfast, again at three.
Stirfry for lunch; in the evening aubergine.
Brown rice with lentils, bulgur stirred in,
With the stirfry and at supper again.
A pear, peanut butter, boiled egg for a snack;
To finish it all a piece of chocolate.
I’ve been finding myself down YouTube wormholes recently. Favourite defaults include meal prep videos which loop into the auto plays of ‘What I Eat In A Day.’ After watching other people prepare and present their day’s meals, I decided to document my own version. This was a sampling from Tuesday last week.
Some other poems I’ve written about food:
I can tell a half bowl of you about leftover Friday rice
Making soup again
