Eclectic Tastes

by Roberta Lawson

Lately, I have taken to making cockroach stew for every meal. Last Thursday, my girlfriend mentioned her fondness for Indian food. Tonight, I add fragrant coriander and lashings of turmeric to the pot of roaches simmering on the stove. Later, I lay out our feast on pillows of nan bread. We eat in a soft-lit circle of melting candles and Moroccan cushions. Dinner is cheery yellow and crunchy as can be.
