Poem-a-Day November 2018 Writer’s Digest Challenge #24. Theme: Salty

Tasty

When Ms. Pepper met Mr. Salt,
she saw him as her equal—
until Miss Sugar came along
& invited him
to sprinkle his crystals
atop her silky caramel.
It was then,
& only then,
that Ms. Pepper realized
there wasn’t anything
Mr. Salt could not do,
for he complemented
the savory,
as well as the sweet,
perfectly.
