Kevin Young, poet ,writes about food

Kevin Young, poet and Emory University professor,
writes movingly about food

Like the great writer of odes, Pablo Neruda, Young address
the object of his celebration like a listener. In his
“Ode to Pork, ” Young writes:

I know you’re the blues
because loving you
may kill me — but still you
rock me down slow
as hamhocks on the stove.
Anyway you come
fried, cued, burnt
to within one inch
of your life I love. Babe,
I revere your every
nickname — bacon, chitlin,
cracklin, sin.
