Slender Batali's "Bon Apetito"
jArE_hAwK

As aperitif
 1
to seduction,
 2
light sprinkles of dark truffles
 3
are the leprechaun's delight,
 4
or,
 5
in matters of lustfulness,
 6
and,
 7
this need be mouthed but once,
 8
the 'oilean' of amore.
 9
 
 
And quite
 10
as the magical dance
 11
of langoustine
 12
through the gentle saline
 13
of the Mediterranean,
 14
two should kiss
 15
simmeringly--
 16
labbra cadabra.
 17
 
 
As the sun presides
 18
over the ensemble giardino,
 19
so the Chef must be
 20
masterful
 21
in his orchestration
 22
of this cucina:
 23
all manner of heat
 24
carefully manipulated;
 25
each subtle facet
 26
of root and leaf
 27
and seed conjoined;
 28
grandiose porzioni di carne
 29
in selected simplifaction
 30
for the deft undertones
 31
and syncopated grace notes
 32
 
 
of desiderio
 33
della donna.
 34
