La Fattoria

Eat and be ferried

to harbours and ports of

seafoods and cottas

and lemon liqueurs

and coffees from heaven and

service in spaces of love,

and waiterly grace,

and God-given genius:

the talent of those who

fascinate their work

and boss their life

into the most curiously

fabulous quirks of

generous dish.

This is my day:

and I am the luckiest

of men: to eat in La Fattoria

is a gift from the land of

the heavens on earth:

this rock that is spinning

us for moments away

from the sadness and into

the joy of toying with tongues

on the tastes of

ready pardons and

shining

paradise.

And sometimes life is good.

And so it was

today.
