National Poetry Month 13/30: Xocalotophobia

This National Poetry Month(NPM), I am writing and sharing original poems about food, family and feasts. Sundays will be a day to reshare a poem from the past. A list of links to previous poems is HERE.

Today’s poem is from Two Sylvias Press. It was to write about a phobia. Of course, I went in search of food oriented phobias: turophobia, cibophobia, and xocalotophobia.

    I had to look it up–and I’m glad I don’t suffer from this one. My bigger fear is to run out of chocolate.

    Cute idea! I have noticed that my need to reduce stress during the pandemic has increased my consumption of 70% or more Fair Trade chocolate!
