Take-Out Blues

Gorgeous online menu
touting dishes that make me drool
Cashew chicken with fresh sweet peppers
Drunken noodles with sweet Thai basil
Appetizers—spring rolls and pot stickers—to die for

A reasonable delivery charge
based on mileage and close by

Looked upscale and trendy
to suit my meeting attendees
in casual business attire

Sadly, the execution
left just a tad to be desired


This is my NaPoWriMo day 6 poem based on the prompt to write about food.

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.
