Happy Hallaoween! 5 Flavors at Little Laos on the Prairie

To celebrate the day, my Rhysling-nominated poem "5 Flavors" was selected by the editors at Little Laos on the Prairie, with art by Vongduane Manivong! It originally appeared in 2013 in the magazine Expanded Horizons.
The title refers to the five basic flavors in Lao cooking and the poem itself was inspired by a trip to my favorite Lao restaurant in Sacramento, the Sabaidee Thai Grille at 8055 Elk Grove Florin Road. A number of traditional spirits from Laos make their appearance in this poem.
