Royd's Note: This fun and tasty poem was concocted from a food exercise from our Poetry Unit. I love this piece for its ability to inspire that salty, crunchy, and cheesy taste. My mouth waters just writing this note. That's what writing using those five senses can do. It has such a powerful effect on our minds and bodies. Even more so, writing can motivate us to act, like wanting to buy those Trader Joe Cheee Puffs. Good thing I'm on a diet! Otherwise, I'd be sitting eating a bag of them right now!
Lastly, I love that this poem hilariously has that longing at the end, as many poems do. He's forbidden to eat a cheese puff! Oh, I can feel your pain, Emerson!
