A poem a day – Haiku – Anchovies

Anchovies mass bodies embalmed layered fossils, fragile frames bones buried in sea Note: I like anchovies – some consider its flavour akin to padaek. I bought this jar partially for the jar – I know. Delicious anchovies though and the infused sunflower oil is divine. Delicious salty pops of flavour when chopped or whole in salads, etc. – mmmmm! :D
