Copper Pans

“The lives of stone         How rich they must be”
                                                             -Delphine, wife of Auguste Escoffier

Betrayed by ghosts
Alive in drifting candle smoke

Stain memories relinquished in time
Gathered in joyous gildings, now lost

Truth is not welcome
Only the essence of imagination

                        The essence

                                                   Of imagination

*Dedicated to the King of Chefs- Auguste Escoffier
