Prawn soup
Prawn soup!

I own the whole eatery. 
I drove miles to be here.
The aroma and warmth, 
Makes me drool to eat here.
I can never resist the prawn soup!
The spices and hotness 
I get indulged in
The sour taste 
It is just perfectly...Read More

A Floating Market on the River
Floating  Market on the River

A Thailand tradition 
Large sun umbrellas 
And boat roofs or hoods
And Asian conical hats
A bucket of cracked brown egg shells 

A grandma quickly whips up 
Egg, oyster and fresh, crisp bean sprout
In rice flour batter

Premium Member Dinner Demands
Soon we're having guests for dinner,
Some old friends from out of town,
So you three must mind your manners,
Just as you've been shown.
Jane, as the eldest, your example
Should set the standard:
Remember, you assume the mantle
Of the courtesy demanded.
Now Stella, you are...Read More

Prawn cocktails I really do like to scoff,

Monsoon Turbulence
Waves leap over his roof again.
Coconut sentinels lose their heads.
His breakwater breaks, but he won’t 	
flee to the monsoon refugee camp.

People and the press stand amid 
the lightning from cameras. Their
rapture is with the waves rising 
high to touch the...Read More

I've got a dish of killifish
I wish to eat that silly fish
Baked, or fried in peanut oil
Roasted, dried, or let to boil.

Make me a star-gazy pie
Take me to the Catfish Fry
Lead me to the China Sea
Feed me hermit crabs and...Read More

Prawn and Winkle Custard
A delicacy and delight
Much nicer than Pilchard Jelly
Sounds disgusting and contrite
I’m partial to Bat wing stew
Though not to the taste of all
But as for Squid legs soup
Yuk, that makes my Stomach crawl

Where I was in the seventies
I stood before the mirror, one last check,
a quick inspection, then head off to town,
silver kipper tie around the neck,
shirt of green, sports jacket of light brown.
Platform shoes on, I boogie down the street,
a first date to look forward to...Read More

Fine is neither a road traffic fine nor a fin
fine isn't a road traffic is a fine of a finest fin favour flashing feverishly


Fine is a shrine,
Not a mortified prawn,
Fine is a tail,
Of a cloud wisp at dawn,
But a fortified wine could build a fortress tunnel,
With undergrowth measuring...Read More

When I see a king prawn in its shell
Some vomit I want to expel

A prawn masquerading as a peanut can be quite disturbing. So many times a peel is a garment used to shroud. A tentacle hidden. Here and there. Then to reappear with an often violent burst of becoming. A burst of...Read More

Beneath the Sea

Through the journey, life arrives
Underwater – start their lives
Stable neither hot nor cold
Soft tiny eggs there to behold

Of such a time, lay vulnerable

Camouflaged with gravel

Frogs and toad, amphibian class
Eggs that float in jelly...Read More
