Tuesday Poem this week has a food thing going on. Ode to Chocolate by Barbara Crooker is the hub poem selected by UK writer Kathleen Jones. A poem that is both funny and sensuous it begins:

I hate milk chocolate, don't want clouds
of cream diluting the dark night sky,
don't want pralines or raisins, rubble
in this smooth plateau.

And then in the blog roll of NZ, UK and US poets there are poems about or including stuffed capsicums (Ian Wedde), plums (Claire Beynon), papaya (Mary McCallum), and mushrooms (Kerry Popplewell). There are also poems about sex (Zireaux), lost lovers (Megan Clayton) and cars (Cliff Fell) ... and much more besides.
