A pot on the fire
flames matching my ire
albuca and potatoes
with a stirring of tomatoes

tonight we sup for eternity
bella donna for modernity
salt and pepper a must
O! life at a cost

hemlock leaves burn
a flavour so sweet
masking stomach churns
as we sup eternal sleep

Today Björn hosts Poetics at dVerse and  invites us to use the names of poisonous plants. Perhaps in a recipe..?
