‘Refrigerator Rhapsody’ by Alex Dreppec


‘Raspberry Cake Inverted’ by Alex Dreppec


Revered, renowned refrigeration –
restrain ricotta’s ruination,
relieve, reveal, reseal, retain,
reshaping rumpled, rough romaine,
relentlessly revitalize.
Relieved, repast rough robbers rise,
refrigerator, restlessly
repudiate rough robbery,
refined, renowned refrigerators
repel remorseless repast raiders,
rebuild respectability –
rockmelons roll relentlessly.
Ratatouille’s racy ration!
Rich retsina’s reputation!
Refrigerator, ritziest,
reveal rotten ravioli’s rest,
repudiate renascent, rancid
rough rubber rolmop, ruined rabbit.
