Joe Pivetti's Poetry, Haiku and Poesy: Poem 2
Return to Table

Tao, Dao or I Ching?



"You must know the whey
Before you take up curd today,"
Said the chi elder
To his disciple cheese-maker.
"Before you can spoil the milk
With the caseiculture creamery ilk
You must seek an internal bacterial amalgamation
And initiate rennet based coagulation
Followed by brining and moulding
To be truly bleu and well for the mongering."
