At last, then, I am allowed to refresh myself in a bath of darkness!
                                                               --Charles Baudelaire

At last, I've found a recipe
for what has so far twice
turned out to be the most
delectable baked beans ever
forked into a human mouth,
I mean Buena-Volunteer-
Fire-Department, barbecue-
rounds-of-horseshoes good,
so I've beamed via glittery
antennae a plea for an equally
elemental German potato
(pronounced "puhtaytuh")
salad recipe so a scalloped
paper plate forever dampens
my left hand as my right
brings everything to my lips.
