Poem: "Ode" to Garlic

As published in Blueprint Magazine’s ROOTS issue.

“Ode” to Garlic
Janice Lee

Clove by clove
you grow
a white flower blooming into a
shower punch (POW!) of Pazzah
in my mouth.
Stay with me garlic!
Today…
Tonight….
Tomorrow…
into my lover’s kiss.
Toothpaste never stood
a chance.
Clove by clove
you grow
into my heart
rooted in only the STRONGEST
feeling of
commitment.
Pazzah!
