Latter Day Baroque

...with an appetite

Popped by the local

Fast Food joint

with that electric sign

reading APEIRON

stuck to the roof above

At the counter, eyeballing

the haggard old waitress

with the heavy jowls

I placed my order:

-A couple of those blind,


from the Mariana Gap, please.

Add a squid

two spoons of sharkfin

and a hint of whatever grows

a bit below sea level...

- And above?

- Muskrat eye, make that two...

Three alligator eggs

and some Tiger tails

- Anything flying?

- One Bat, please,

but no "Condor Pasa" this time

- Going further out?

- Those stars look delicious,

throw in half a dozen

-Would that be all, Sir?

- Ah, put a few vegetables

and some salsa on top

- And how do you want it served?

- In a black hole

to take away
