"Relish on a Hotdog" - a poem by Audrey Austin


We used to be like relish
On a hotdog.
Now I am here.  You are there.
Slim space between
Yet I have built a mountain
In the middle.
Or was it you who
Cast the first stone
Leaving me alone
To add the boulders until
Now the mountain pass
Is blocked with innuendo
Wrapped in sarcasm?
I don’t relish hotdogs anymore.
This poem by Audrey Austin is one of the Judge's Selections in a Northern Ontario Poetry Collection, Volume Eighteen 2013 titled "Spirits in Stone".
