"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2016 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw.

Secret Recipe

I serve the angel hair pasta
layered in portabella and cream
with bruschetta caprese.  Their glee
shakes my "garden of eden" chandelier
like so much sprinkled cheese.
Noodles spin and twirl a dance
while children laugh, and no one cares
if the "artisan sour dough" came from Wal-mart
in the far back corner-- on the stale shelf--
where I rescued it for $1.09 from
two ladies thinking about day-old
powdered doughnuts.

  1. You're so fancy in your cooking! You inspire me SO much. I love the idea of you "rescuing bread" from two ladies. So very awesome.
