The inspiration for these illustrations came from a collaboration with the writer David Hensley who creates witty and sensuous poetry about food. Below is the poem on the reverse of the sweet potato card. It was the first poem of David's that I had ever heard and it still makes me chuckle.

Potato, Sweet Potato

I am your baked sweet potato
Divert your eyes,
From my hard,
Imperfect skin
Inside, I am soft and hot for you
Pierce me, now, please
Open up my cut, and fill me
With your butter
Watch, as it melts inside me
Take my earthy sweetness
On your tongue
And feel me
Sliding and satisfying

by David Hensley
