Crunch

Would watermelon taste as sweet without it
The sound and feel of crunch

There’s the obvious crunch of
Nuts, carrots, celery with cream cheese

There’s the softer crunch of
Roast beef, tomato, mayo, wrapped in lettuce leaves

Did I mention toast and jam, chips and salsa,
A cracker with pate

Green salad with bell pepper, cucumber,
And hearts of romaine

A meal doesn’t give a thrill without it
The sound, the feel, of crunch

    I don’t care for soggy dough in cobblers or biscuit centers. Hoorah for the crunch!
