Improv for Dinner

Improv for Dinner by Kimberly M. King, RSCJ

I am fairly confident
that my tastebuds just heard jazz
delivered by a salad strewn with voices
in a creative tension of flavor, texture, and color:
Strings of zucchini, curled and coiled
next to the jigsaw that once was chicken and
the netsuke sphere of purple cabbage, tucked
in-between orderly cubes of sweet potatoes
that balance on the rhythm of kohlrabi rhyme…
all wrapped in an riff of melted goat cheese
and building to the final crashing cymbal 
of vinegar-soaked onions.
