Discomfort Food

It was utterly joyless
It was ash in my mouth
The meal you chose for me

Ox tail soup
Barley rice with grated yams
Beef tongue with red pepper miso paste

Usually I love this food
I am no lily livered gaijin
Afraid of food not firm or burnt

Food is comfort
And I know you need that now
But is it worth taking joy from me?
