My Ode to Korean Corn Icecream
|Korean Corn Ice Cream|
The concept seems Alien to my westernized mind, but the yellow wrapper draws me in.
Maybe it is possible for corn and dessert to be one.
Maybe, possibly, inscrutably
As I undress you, I am struck instantly by your bulbous kernels.
No, you are not just the flavor, the jewels of the stalk are there.
You are like a woman with a prominent mustache (I try not to look, but I sneak a peek.)
As I move in for a nibble, the kernel stares back at me...longingly
I almost pull away
drop the stem and leave you as you slowly melt into a cornish puddle on the walk.
But as much as I am repulsed, I am intrigued.
I move in and grab a cold kernel that is imbedded in light corn cream.
The chewy kernel slowly warms in my mouth as my teeth grind away at the hull.
Not my favorite, but I will finish you off.
You are something that everyone should experience
for you make life...
