Adam and Eve on Raft (Excerpt from “Grapes Suzette”and Free Chapbook)


Pink Rose Sketch 2

Following is an acrostic poem, which means that each line starts with each letter in the title, in order.  This type of poem doesn’t have to rhyme.

Adam and Eve on a Raft” is diner slang for two poached eggs on toast. It’s a light fare, and temptingly delicious!

Adam and Eve on a Raft

All I want is to break my fast, and
Doughnuts won’t do.
All I want is eggs on plain toast, you see.
Muffins in the English style
Are for another day, as are
No waffles, no ‘cakes, no popovers.
Dry, plain toast cradling two
Eggs, poached, are the
Vittles to my liking, so
Eggs is what I’ll get
On a white china plate.
No sausage, no ham
And no links or bacon. hence
Raisin toast will rule another day.
All I want is breakfast, so to
French toast I say “Non!” but rather, “Yes!” to plain
Toast that makes the raft for Adam and Eve.

This, and more of my tasty poems, are available in my poetry chapbook, “Grapes Suzette: And Other Poetic Epicurean Delights” through Amazon Kindle. You can pick it up for FREE February 15 and 16, 2018.

Bon Appétit!
