Reading my poem “Garlic Press” for my radio interview with Victoria Onefrei. Link for the show will be coming as soon as I have it!
For its mechanical ferocity Consider the garlic press: The most aggressive kitchen tool More violent than the tenderizer. Peel the transparent husk Push the shiny bulb Down into the cup Pressing its arched back Over the grid of holes Line up the plunger – Hinged silver block Created to crush – Grip the handles Squeeze Pressing the bulb into the screen Pushing past its initial resistance Until it breaks Garlic pulps through holes Splattering in shafts Splashing into the dish.
One thought on “Poetry Reading”
Great imagery. Nice job!
