Japanese Market. Will you cc?

Japanese Market

by Carey Ball

The smell of teriyaki in the air

Octopus, clams, fish in an open market

And of course rice; rice, rice, rice

Sake, tea, soy sauce (you don’t drink the soy sauce)

“Let’s go fishing for trout with cane poles”

“Over at the fish farm?” “Yes!”

“They cook the trout for you right there, you know.”

  • I like the premise for this poem.

    I wasn’t sure how much rice smelled like anything.

    Wouldn’t tempura smell as well as vegetables are getting fried?
