baguette / David Rutkowski

   
baguette

"Senegalese-origin baker wins coveted best baguette award"
                               Radio France Internationale, 23/03/10

tap on one end of a baguette
and you can hear the echo of conversations
the click of velvet wine glasses
a billion love affairs working themselves
into untenable textures which will fill
minds the way crust surrounding
the heart of a maiden is crushed
to provide something as basic as nourishment
something as frivolous as a companion for grapes
