Fire Food


out of fire comes food

blackened and burnt: transformed

not by measured touch of pipe or wire

instead by a hot and barely controllable

sinuous dancer,

one who assumes you like

tasty morsels encased

in charcoal


Kristina Jensen considers herself a ‘poet afloat’, living as she does among the waterways of the Marlborough Sounds. She loves wild food, especially her very own trademark wild weed pesto. She writes freelance foodie articles, publishing both locally and internationally, and submits poetry with gay abandon to whoever takes her fancy.
