Mrs. Browning's Ode to Peanut Butter: A Parody This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


How do I pick thee? Let me count theways.
I pick thee to the depth, and breadth, andheight
My tongue can reach when feeling alone atnight
For the smooth, sweet-tinged cream I crave andpraise,
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Mosturgent need, by morn and snack late-night.
I love thee withbread, how thou melt on bite;
I love thee with milk, thyflavor all ways.
I love thy nutty, crunchy stickygoos
In my hunger, and with my growling faith.
I lovethee with a love I never lose
For thy tangy surprise. Ilove thee with
New nostalgia, teeth, and lips. And, mymuse,
I vow: no jams shall ever taint my breath.
