Poem: Mashed Potatoes

In playing the Creative Copy Challenge a few weeks ago, the words inspired a rather comical poem from me and I decided to repost my poem that I wrote in the comments of that entry.

Mashed Potatoes

Gravity of watching sultry gravy pouring

distributing essence into the tempest of white clouds

Eyes widen as mouth salivates with grim determination

Like a torrid traveler desperate for water you dive in

a blistering tongue from the hot liquid your only prize

wishing your breath were as frigid as a blizzard

you attempt to cool down your desire with a blow

-Poem by Justin Germino

    I have never heard mashed potatoes described in such a fashion. You really have a way with words. What was the inspiration?

    This is certainly a very unique poem. One of my favorite cooked foods, mashed potatoes, gets a interesting and tasty description.
