Master Chef

“Mein Liebster hat zu Tische mich geladen
Und hatte doch kein Haus mich zu empfangen,
Nicht Holz noch Herd zum Kochen und zum Braten,
Der Hafen auch war längst entzwei gegangen.
An einem Fäßchen Wein gebrach es auch,
Und Gläser hat er gar nicht im Gebrauch;
Der Tisch war schmal, das Tafeltuch nicht besser,
Das Brot steinhart und völlig stumpf das Messer.”

(P. Heyse in Italienisches Liederbuch)
Ombret (B)

Snack Sainte Odile

“Rhythms touching and emanating visions of life that 
used to bring happiness into being.

Now no more does it happen, as I walk down darkened
and abandoned highways leaving me stranded on a corner
of emptiness.”

(RoseAnn Shawiak in Stranded on a corner)

Looking for the cook

“I went into a restaurant
Lookin’ for the cook
I told them I was the editor
Of a famous etiquette book
The waitress he was handsome
He wore a powder blue cape
I ordered some suzette, I said
“Could you please make that crepe”
Just then the whole kitchen exploded
From boilin’ fat
Food was flying everywhere
And I left without my hat”

(Bob Dylan in Bob Dylan’s 115th dream)

Armurerie Friterie; shooting potatoes

Armurerie Friterie; shooting potatoes
“Don’t wanna shoot nobody, don’t wanna be shot
Don’t wanna buy nobody, don’t wanna be bought
Don’t wanna bury nobody, don’t wanna be buried
Don’t wanna marry nobody if they’re already married”

(Bob Dylan in Do right to me baby)

Le Chevillard

“I cannot eat but little meat,
My stomach is not good;
But sure I think that I can drink
With him that wears a hood.”
