Typewriter Rodeo: Foodie Vibes

Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on Texas topics.

Trying something new and different can be fun – but may also leave you wanting a little more. That was the inspiration behind this Typewriter Rodeo poem.

Foodie Vibes

When the waiter begins,
“We do things a bit different here.”

You know what you’re in for:
Plates small to micro

Simple foods made complicated
Words like emulsion & compote

You’ll need wine to pair
Something with notes
of a barnyard floor

The meal will end
the check will come
your jaw may hit the floor

Don’t forget to post your photos
as you wait in line
at Whataburger

Because you definitely won’t be full.
