Tuesday in CinCity. The "I Have Lusted in My Heart" Edition.

A Short Panegyric


by Mark Strand


                                  


Now that the vegetarian nightmare is over and we are back to

our diet of meat and deep in the sway of our dark and beauty-

ful habits and able to speak with calm of having survived, let

the breeze of the future touch and retouch our large and hun-

gering bodies. Let us march to market to embrace the butcher

and put the year of the carrot, the month of the onion behind

us, let us worship the roast or the stew that takes its place once

again at the sacred center of the dining room table.


(Olivier's on Decatur Street, New Orleans. And, yes, I'm still thinking about their Creole Rabbit.)
