I found the poem “Lobster & Butter” by Colette B. to be powerful and meaningful, yet subtle and witty. My favorite part is “With you, I will be devoured./My entity itself will simply disappear/Yet you complete me.” The subject of a lobster and butter is light and silly, but the meaning is deep. This contrast gives the poem both seriousness and humor, which leaves the reader thinking and wanting to reread the poem. I truly enjoyed “Lobster & Butter.”
