Savory, or: Sweet

A limerick

Miz Jelena’s Sweet Potato Pie
Draws me so, but I cannot say why.
I wonder 'bout the tangy smell...
But the woman refuses to tell!
"Just, eat some more," she replies with a sigh.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)
