Entering Onion Country

When I need an escape and a relinquishment of frustration, I head on down to Dave’s Onion Bar. Twenty-four years ago, Dave realized his boyhood dream of preparing onions 101 ways. Many of said preparations are redundancies, but it’s difficult to discover new ways to cook food after thousands of years of innovations in the arena. All in all, Dave grins from ear to ear whenever he meets a new customer. Every table has a complimentary bowl of after-dinner mints to combat the fact that 100% of his dishes are at least halfway-composed of onion. Surprisingly, not a single patron has ever complained about the lack of variety. They know heading into the place that onions are their destination. In fact, there’s a sign in front that boldly states: “ENTERING ONION COUNTRY”.

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
