Connections: December 29.16

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAThere are unbelievers

I have heard

who think that Jello

is table’s nerd

they wouldn’t have it

on their plate

its commonness

too profligate.

Their families haven’t

gathered ’round

to listen for

that Jello sound

a sign of

gastronomical luck

like foot pulled out of

deep deep muck.

There’s science and art

both delicate and tough

to make the mold

disgorge its stuff,

and nothing speaks

of drama unfolded

like cheering for

the jiggly unmolded.

So hoorar for the Jello

and family rite

may we hold to such memory

with good appetite.
