At the Paradise Cafe

By Bobbi Sinha-Morey

where coq au vin is
served on a tea tray,
mussels are flambed
and salmon steaks
are filleted you
can buy aperitifs
by the bay for the
skin of an otter,
the seeds of a
sunflower, saffron
and neem leaves.
For a quart of
Portofino wine,
tortellini and
blueberry pie
you can borrow a
rhinestone from
Tiffany's, win
tickets to Graceland,
rent a Thighmaster
to shapen your size.
Yet there is a bonus
when you order the
salami on rye: a free
silent newsreel on
the short life of
Pearl White.
