HOT CURRY

A Gourmenga between Alexis K. Rotella and ai li
Los Gatos, California and London
20 - 22 March 1997

 

 

 

Hot curry
our clothes come off

 

memsahib
with cucumber eye-pads

 

under his armpits
smell of star anise

 

the amah picks
citronella leaves

 

with a vanilla bean
she scratches her thigh

 

palm tree in wind
dropping coconuts

 

blood oranges arrive
by Federal Express

 

the blight on this year's
pink grapefruit

 

on the billboard
a giant strawberry ice-cream cone

 

dairy queen
looking up 'bulimia'
