SECOND LIFE

SECOND LIFE

Shrimp swim again in sauce,
rare steaks bleed, vegetables
sprout in earthen plates,
fish slide from frypans
over throats like waterfalls,
potatoes sink back to the dark
soil of bellies; all living again
for gourmet or trencherman.

    And berries, in their season, leaping into the mouths of bears.
    It is good to be omnivorous.
