Balthazar's Feast In Upper Manhattan
Our seventh date spills out, glorious!
We will dine with all New York
dashed against the sky,
eat big amidst the ambience
of signed Klee lithographs
and sit in chairs big as racing boats.
A school of little fish crudi with a sip
Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru for you,
crudos spoken to in arctic char and tipped
with enoki mushrooms, daikon sprouts
adding green luster to the bone China plate.
A julienned apple appears, you hold a fruit
quarter on your tongue, wait for the fade-in
of balsamic vinaigrette, unrehearsed
like first light ...
