Mama Cooked Up the Loving Potion — Post-Covid Fun!
a sibling of culinary poetics
rid of Covid twenty twenty-two
roaring a lozenge twenty twenty-three
freed the spirit of purposed rover
laughing crooning rolling over
lemons loquat licorice luohan
figs and well aged peels of tangerine
dark plums cinnamon soothing hawthorn
fourleaf ladybell roots and pears
fragrant rhizome seal of solomon
rocking salt of himalayan
bring you closer not a poser
zhou xuan sweet ella lady gaga
swag rhythm of tina turner
oh nightingales and lions’ booms
knocking storms across the zooms
natural herbs the merry chauffeur
silly humans don’t you reckon
who is having all the fun
mama nature almighty composer!
I got over Covid on day 3 of 2023 with my voice yet to return. And what do I see on the back of the lozenge packet? Plants my mother used in my childhood. Roaring herbs for the voice!
