I had to leave off on my cattle marker project for a week to attend the Walk to Defeat ALS in Portland Oregon, so I decided to post a different kind of poem today, sans illustration. But after reading this one, you’ll probably be relieved that I didn’t illustrate it. The mental image alone is plenty.

A few years ago I had the brainstorm of combining my love of poetry and carbohydrates and the result was thigh-ku. My first thigh-ku was:

dimpled like dumplings
they speak of human frailty
and carbohydrates
