From Poetic Asides:  “For today’s prompt, think of a favorite regional cuisine, make that the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. For instance, you may title your poem something like “Brunswick Stew,” “Deep Dish Pizza,” or “Jambalaya,” though the poem doesn’t exactly have to be about food.”

deep fried turkey

the first time i hosted
thanksgiving dinner
i deep fried two turkeys
one was marinated with garlic, butter, and cajun seasonings
the other was injected with grace and love
both were cooked to perfection
for sides we served garlic whipped happiness
candied laughter with marsh mellows
and saut
ed peace
during dinner the guests shared the blessings
for which they were grateful
there wasn’t a dry eye at the table
we chased it down
with a several bottles of joy
and took one shot of good luck
to cap off a memorable evening

everyone helped themselves
to seconds
