You never soap out a wok or teapot. Just soak in green tea, like that girl on Sherlock
In Heston’s pudding is a whole orange. So over Christmas all the juice soaks in

My toastie machine soaked in aged rich cheese
A guardsman’s jacket from the age of steam
A brace of pheasants on the rack above
Approaching half-life of galvanic sludge
Soaking an oak cask in galvanic sludge

Rubbing an apron in salt from the sea
Feeding a fruit cake up with neat brandy
The aftertaste of Cazu Matzu cheese

The ingrained pub smells since the smoking ban
Kylie, Liz Hurley and Nigella Lawson
A poetry book, splashed in crumpet stains
The changing language between Basque and Spain
Stuffing an oil drum with galvanic sludge

Avoiding change and not a moment too soon! File under imagination…. Lack of….
But, if you find your senses reeling, prepare to hit them through the ceiling

Our student fryer, never changed its oil
A baby’s blanket with her mother’s smell
Yamaha resonate guitars to age
Resting a steak to keep in juice and taste
