|The Art of the Pickler|

Don’t ever forget that pickles are chipped
Under carefully controlled conditions.
The cucumber – if you can call it that –
Remains under delicate pressure along its length
As the blades descend like guillotines,
Decapitating the headless fruit.
Nobody wants a mushy pickle chip.
Relish is for hot dogs
And is sold that way.
Flat or ridged, our heroic chip must be coin of the realm
Beneath the fried cholesterol patty
Floating in mayonnaisic anonymity.
It must be round.
The pickler knows his art.
Trust in his standard of quality.
