You can make a meal of me any day, big boy,
I'm ripe and juicy, nectarine sweet
a tangy little kick on the tip of the tongue.

I'm smooth as an avocado
slippery as a trout
soft as mashed potatoes.

from Cooking with Mae West

Among Judi Benson's many ventures has been What Poets Eat, a book she edited with poems and recipes from many well-known writers. American born and resident in the UK since 1978, she has been director of a symphony orchestra, amateur actress, journalist, general dogsbody and artist, with three London exhibitions to her credit. Her poems are direct, fluent, surprising - always fun.
