Taste my Portmanteau by Varsha Rao


Art by Neha Khaitan


I do not worry that I cannot cook

For you.

Because I can make good words

For you.

Delectable vowels to digest And

Tempting propositions with prepositions

You cannot resist

Taking into your mouth.

So I make words for you

Ones that did not exist

Until I created them

Using my pan of portmanteau

And seasoning them with conjunctions

For you see,

Conjunctions are my secret ingredient

I use them to link parts of you to me
