This is just a nice little poem about capers.


Capers

Little green dots
I've discovered
that add bite
to tarter sauce
what a mystery
to find a new
ingredient
a new flavor
a new food
in the Italian
aisle
of an import shop
in a far city
on the shores
of a sound
of the munch
into a sardine
sandwich,
the fish from
Morrocco
the capers
from California.

I've never eaten capers but your poem makes me want to try some.
