Title: The contents of my fridge.

A big bunch of juicy green grapes
well chilled
and glistening under the light.
Thanks to Spanish farmers.

Nice block of extra mature cheddar
and awaiting savoured destruction.
Thanks to English cheese makers.

Six free-range large size eggs
from a local farm
some will be double-yokers.
Thanks to real country hens.

Two pints of full cream milk
in glass bottles
with foil tops and built in clink noise.
Thanks to the jogging milkman.

Beautiful Halal goat curry
in an Addis container
with a blue snap top and no label.
Thanks to my neighbour's wife.

Three bottles of nail varnish
with shiny black tops
all red and pearl and glittery.
Thanks to the Japanese girls.

A salad drawer full
of pak-choi
and celery and scallions.
Thanks to the bountiful earth.

Oodles of noodles
freshly made
laid out flat on crinkly paper.
Thanks to Thai girlfriend.

Half a small carton
of coconut cream
bought at Asda but well travelled.
Thanks to Indonesia.

Two winter whiting
fresh as you like
straight out the sea that morning.
Thanks to the fisherman.

Four bars of chocolate
all big and various
foil-wrapped and brazen and tempting.
Thanks to the chocolatiers .

Six sterilized medical bags
of high nutrition formula feed
with incorporated intravenous connectors.
Thanks to colon cancer.
