Health Food short poem

Photo by Migle Seikyte

Rub cheese on your knees,
To cure a runny nose.
Sliced onions on your bunions,
To ease your itchy toes.

A banana in your ear,
Will dry those dreadful tears.
A carrot up your nose,
Will keep your vision clear.

Strawberries on your head,
Will keep you wide awake.
Tomatoes on your shoulder,
Will give you one less ache.

Lettuce in your arm pits,
Will keep the sweats away.
A plum between your knees,
Will keep headaches at bay.

Eat a coconut a day
Keeps the doctor away

Food Was Left On The Plate short poem

For you I am walking on rocks holding unburnt match sticks, you want me to throw them behind me. To step down in lake for washing sins from the snuffed out skylights. Between green and blue I climb on leaves.
