Halloumi by Claire Marsden



Halloumi

Will you come and fry me some halloumi,

smother it in flour

and buttery goodness?

It isn’t cheating.

It isn’t hearts breaking.

It isn’t getting lost in slices of nostalgia—

suffering.

It is bubbling

and squeaking

and smiling.





Claire Marsden enjoys writing non-fiction, flash fiction and poetry, and is thrilled her first pamphlet will be published later this year with Hedgehog Press.
