What if Wednesday: Bad Meal – Bad Picture
What if you go to prepare a meal and things head down the rabbit hole ? You start with a marinade for the meat. Later you prepare seasoned quinoa and prepare some simple veggies. Ah yes, the meal smells great and looks good on the table, …… perhaps a photograph might have been a warning ………..
Greek pork seasoned scent
rises up kitchen – fills plate
sides sit next to smiles
anticipation is a table cloth –
outcome uneasy cutlery
Quinoa was over/unevenly seasoned and the veggies were bland………… and the Greek marinade resulted in a trial from Hades. A meal to be left on the other side of the River Lethe.
So, what if you have some bad photos from an unfortunately memorable meal. You look for other bad photos, perhaps one of those oddities that seem to spring up in a house full of puppets, masks & costumes. Start blending & seasoning the images, ….. they might turn out better than the meal.
Alien grows out –
boxes pile up heaps of strange
smiles – hangs over sun
monstrous misshapen head grins at misery
ancient archetype roars across time
a monument in the cave of dreams
