Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
And this week she also provides the photo prompt, sure to soothe even my savage breast.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.

The Food of Love
You can probably guess my taste in music.
Well, rock ‘n’ roll, obviously.
But cats make good instruments, although their yowls become tedious rather quickly.
A dog’s howls have more variety, greater range, especially if suspended over flames.
Elderly folks have a higher pitch, but too weak to truly fulfil my needs.
A couple of lovers, played together, can sometimes be very rewarding.
The anger at what I inflict on the other adds a welcome dimension.
But too often they create discordance rather than harmony.
So children are my favourites.
They shriek exquisitely.
And they taste so much better afterwards.
