curry [poem]

I’m curry powder
a complicated mix of different spices
the smoky warmth
of paprika and cayenne on the tongue
is my passion for living
turmeric’s bright hue my enthusiasm for each moment
the unique scent of cardamom and clove
are my secrets
the way I sometimes catch you off guard
mustard powder is my spunk
pepper my spine
garlic the strong flavor of my mind
cumin and coriander round out my mix
of this and that and a bit of the rest
and there I am
full flavored curry on your tongue

Side note: this poem is based on my personal curry mix, crafted up when the store-bought mixes were lackluster.
