Pour Violette (L'atelier de figue)



J'aime les figues, les merveilleuses figues/
Les figues qui passent/
ici... ici.... /
De la bouche à l'estomac.

(Le spleen, euh, le ventre de Paris, euh, de Toronto)

La-bàs, la-bàs, dans ses merveilleux nuages, M. Baudelaire me reproche sans doute, mais... mais... c'est par affection...


I love figs. I appropriated some of Baudelaire's famous lines from "Le spleen de Paris" and reworked them... with affectionate apologies to the great author!

  2. mmmm. Figs! With Balkan-style yogurt and a drizzle of honey. Food fit for Queens. Alas. I can only find fresh figs at Costco. Infrequent at best.
