Which food best accommodates an occasion poem?

The occasion, you ask. Winter Solstice. Let there be light, let there be a pomegranate. A cypress will do no harm.

When a pomegranate is mentioned, of course, it’s the seeds we’re talking about. Good to invoke on the shortest day of the year. Perhaps to the above trinity, add "anticipation".

  1. darn ditch

    swallows up a meal or two

    picking up grasses and shoots

    full enough to bother

    exceptions are a seasonal stroll

    by the muddied hat of a patriot

    don't pick it up she says

    it might be poison that tastes good
