Ever To Remind – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Punam is hosting poetics with an invitation to write a poem choosing four words from a list all with an Indian flavour (noting the month of celebrations culminating in the feast of Diwali).

The words I have chosen are: Bangles, chit, Chutney, cashmere.

“… chutney reigns on my plate.” Robyn Brittow

Ever To Remind

The retro,
well, that's what I call it,
always playing yesterday's music on loop,
the Bangle's have been around twice in an hour
since the barista hung the chit for our espresso,
the steak sandwich arrived while we
mused about the the weather pouring in,
daunting slabs of bread weighing the table down,
the waiter saying steak and chuckney. 
You picked yours up and gorged your cheeks full,
the chutney oozing through your lips sweet and sticky,
such a passionate celebration,
dark drops falling to the rise of your 
bright orange cashmere sweater,
ever to remind.

  1. What a reminder! Haven’t heard Bangles in ages. Paul, you created such a cosy, retro scene.


  2. I wore an autumn leaves sweater yesterday and spilled a couple of drops of coffee thanks to Di’s post😀 and thought I can’t even tell — so that shirt is definitely a let’s eat out choice😂

  8. Steak and chutney? Now that’s an interesting combination. We always try to keep a jar of chutney for when my wife does a curry. BUt supply is very low, and there’s only one place one can get it here…

  10. I love that last line!
    I’ll take the coffee, but pass on the sandwich.😊


  11. Where is the food? :-)) I don’t care of spilling it over a sweater, as long as we are allowed to eat what we want to eat. 😉 xx Michael
