Deep Fried Puddle



A frozen puddle
reminded me of a chicken thigh
lightly dusted with flour,
waiting on a deep dive
in roiling oil.

I thought about
stepping on the metaphor
but, decided not;
soon enough
it’d be cold broth
for a rising, hungry sun.

Pat--where in heck are you, to be crunching in frozen puddles at this time of year--I thought you were in the balmy South! I haven't seen frost yet in polar NYC.

I finally cheated on my vegetarian diet yesterday, after holding out for years since I gave up meat.
Couldn't resist that tender juicy stewed chicken wing...
and here you are with the thigh--!

Guess we're on the same hungry wavelength.

Hope you're here to stay, Pat, your words brighten the world!
