Lorenzo’s 12” Gluten-Free Pizza w/Anchovies

with 2 comments

Long had I romanticized the anchovy – imagined

five-and-dime store secrets, the dusty wisdom of tinned foods

would be waiting for me –


I lusted after it on menus.

After all I enjoyed eel, which turned my family’s stomachs,

though I always laughed.

Strange foods were a joyous rebellion.

I thought I was a virtuoso.



But it really does taste like that.

Soy-Sauce Rice and Broccoli In An Enormous Wok

with one comment

A list of events:
1. You were a dinosaur.

2. We picked your flesh off with spoons.

3. And sat by the campfire.

4. The wind was needles on the roof.

5. I scrubbed your hide with salt & vinegar.

Cinnamon Cookies w/Caramel Cookie Sauce

leave a comment »

Forward, ladies and gentlemen!
To a shining new future
of Cake Sauce, Donut Sauce,
perhaps the savories; Sandwich Sauce,
Fish Sauce (no, that’s a thing), Sausage Sauce,
Vegetables Sauce, Stew Sauce.

Ah, how man’s achievements climb,
each food perfectly matched to a liquid complement, until, one numinous day,
Cookie Sauce Sauce, ad infinitum.
