Artwork to inspire poetry: smoked pork ribs

smoked pork ribs

Above is a photograph of smoked pork ribs.  It is food as art.  It can inspire poetry.  (As a note, on December 27, 2017, the poetry topic idea: ribs was posted about.  Check that post for ideas about writing about ribs.)

it took a lot of time
and effort

there was wood
and water
and fire

sometimes
the temperature
was too low

other times
too high

the water ran out

and there was a flare up

but sometimes
in cooking
there is more worth
than the food
you eat
