Start with a prebaked pizza crust. Layer smoked salmon on the pizza, followed by a layer of raw spinach leaves. Next add a layer of feta. Sprinkle dried oregano and dried chile flakes over all. Then add some grated cheddar. Bake at 425′ F for 10 minutes. Serve with grapefruit.
Terimuso means friend in the lingua franca of Mali, West Africa. My poems reflect the many homelands of my childhood. My dad snapped the header photo to this blog in Casablanca, Morocco, as we were en route to Montpellier, France. This photo—with me in a red dress, holding my mom's hand—foreshadows the themes I explore in poetry: light and dark, East and West, mother and child. In this blog I juxtapose early and recent poems, stringing them together as they come to mind or as one theme suggests another. I invite you to accompany me on the journey. View all posts by terimuso
