Lost Condiments
Entry for 2016-06-10


At the very back of the continental shelf

lie undiscovered, dust-encrusted

jars of spices: lost condiments

awaiting a resurgence of the cryptozoic age

when giant endodontists, roused from slumber,

eager to gouge out primordial canals,

came trooping in, their morning toast arrayed

on crustal plates, jagged maws drooling

for an igneous belch of pyroclastic chutney
