What frames a meal?  Is is spice?  Is it plate or bowl? Utensils?  Those gathered around a table?  What frames a poem?  For sure, sound.  Also, font & line break.  Both meal & poem are tangible.  Both tactile. Both benefit from an engaged audience.  And, yes, there is sound to a meal.
Crunch, nibble & laughter.

  1. Circles on the seawall, they ate the chili prepared the night before. It was quiet on the boulevard then, before the sun came up. The music from the cafe was jazzy, and small boats were beginning to launch for the day's catch. I didn't realize then that her father had just been jailed.
