24 Poems: “The Dinner Party”




That beginning roux

Then a yolk and cream

Stirred until silky

For a catalyst cream


Alas, when mixed with sherry

Dill salt and pepper

Presented on thinly sliced Vetebröd

Now their feeling so pepper


There was a spritely glee

For the lightness and sweetness

And pastry-like texture

Smiles of sweetness


Dare I say it wasn’t perfect

But I’m not sure if anyone knew

The fine pale wine

Reassured what they knew


A very pleasant introduction

To the next courses ahead

And all the joy

That will tickle through our heads
