Human Recipe


Here you have these cold cuts,

neither too fresh, nor too dry:

just the right degree of aging.

Serve them with a salad on the side:

dog hips and asparagus

to evoke the wilderness,

sea weed against assumptions,

stereotypes and prejudice.

Brain-shaped walnuts

to feed your mind,

a soft-boiled egg to welcome what’s new,

onion to arise strong feelings in you.

Basil leaves for heritage,

cherry tomatoes for identity.

Coriander and a pinch of cumin

tell the passion for foreign things.

For the dressing: a sprinkle of EVO oil

for the love of the land,

and red vinegar for rants.

Doesn’t taste very good;

well, nor do I.
