On top
Like ramen
Injera butter crème on
the clams in the pan
Crustini and
Salumi gore
With Steve Albini
I make a flan
With daikon
Sprinkle white truffle
So subtle
Stuff a burrito
In the duffel
Ruffle taro chips
AND POI
OLD BOY
Suck the bone marrow
Straight out the
FUGU SPINE
Wined and dined out at
Chez HERVÉ
Sitting on a throne
Of blood sausage
Wishing I was home alone
Spicy general mustard
With the hammer
Wearing open toed shoes
On holiday from
Hill street blues
The deuce deuce
And the double O
Kung POW
Wack Sao
DEE DEE MOW
Chika plow
Water always tastes great …
Pho and pâté
Soufflé all day
Fried bald
Eagle gizzards
And Komodo dragon
Heart tartar
Smash an
uni kolachi
Inside Kabayashi’s hibachi
Butt naked chewing
Hamachi belly
I PHONE HOME
Put the mise en place
IN THE PLACE
Incandescent fixture of flavor
Baklava so nutty
call The ambulance
Enigmatic arepas
Of Devine and
Devious components
Coptic eye of Horus
Rotund gravlax
Caper CRÈME unlocks
A porter house for two
And fatty fins
Sliced thin so blue …
Side of pomme frites
With a saucer full of
Durian roux …
The amuse bouche
Smacked of tenderness
And obtuse tannins
Let loose yet obtuse
THE ONLY GRAVY
THAT EVER SAVED ME
WAS MY BABY …
