Danny Gentile #61 - Umami


as a tomato
unless you find
eating a neologism
a poetic thing

you very well might
it is yours to savour
a glutamate to lull
the fermentation
across your tongue

but now the nucleotides
are washing me away
“Now we’re cooking”
echoes from the palate 
and returns
in a Byzantine figure

served up by
a Japanese Professor
a man of both
witness and taste

who was always
in time for dinner
