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?
