I really like 'Self Serving' (or was it Single Serving? It won't let me get back to your poetry now to check!!) partly because I identify with the topic so strongly - there IS no fun in cooking for one! - and partly because it's such a quirky topic to have for a poem, and mostly because I really like your writing style.I've written poetry from childhood, but it was only 12 years ago (I'm now a pensioner by the way!) that I took a creative writing course, the second module of which was poetry, and although I enjoyed it immensely, I was a tad exasperated by the conventional topics and titles we were given for our writing exercises. It was as if poetry can only be applied to deep and important, beautiful subjects. I'm happy to write on deep, important and beautiful topics, but I also think poetry should be a means of expressing all our experiences in life (the good, the bad and the ugly, the unjust, the tragic and the painful, and the downright hilarious), and I'm always jotting down lines here and there from a multitude of sources, insights and conversations. But I'd never thought, and probably never would have thought, of writing about the solitary meals I cook for myself... and like you, sometimes do several meals at once and freeze them for later... and yet they're such an aspect of living alone, and definitely deserve a poem. Only a poem can put across the practical difficulties and the hidden-away emotional twinges of cooking for one in such a way that readers could have that moment of revelation and grasp the scenario for the first time. No moaning, no groaning, no whinging, just a deceptively simple construction of words... and it brings to life a whole character and lifestyle - just as a poem should. I'd like to say 'well done' but it sounds so patronising from a stranger, so I'll just repeat that I really like your work! :-D
