Most things toast

Don’t want to boast
but I’m not quite as low as
the most-things-toast
brigade of cooks. This one does

more: you-can-have-curry-
or pasta-

and the reason for this relative
expertise is what I’d call creative
tendencies: adding ‘How does it look?’ yet
to, ‘Hat es gut geschmeckt?’

Palate and palette fascinate
And colours, sometimes,
More than taste, dictate
Whatever you get on your plate.
