The American dream pancake

NYC here I come. Uptown, Fifty-sixth Street and Madison. Expensive Armani suit and a platinum Rolex. Yellow cabs. Buckled up. Go downtown. Canal and Broadway. You want a suit? Just choose the tag: Dolce & Gabbána, Versacé, Armaní. A Rolex? Buy a pound. Up or down, who cares how? I’ll be there.

Dependable banana cupcakes

Just like every other morning, I entered the coffee shop across the street from my home. This morning you smiled at me. The cupcake was so fresh and the glass of hot milk more organic than ever. Now, just like every other morning, I understand anew that my taste changes according to your daily recipe of whims.

My lost childhood birthday cake

When I was a little boy, I was always told there is no end to love. So perhaps that is why, each time I have a birthday, I am sad: On my birthdays I want love. I want all of it, and no matter how much I get I still think it’s not enough. That somewhere out there in infinity, there are more of love’s crumbs that were not handed to me. Today is my birthday. I lit some candles and made a lone plea: that next year, if at all possible, there’ll be an end to love for me.

My very own honey pie

You hover in front of the kitchen window, colorful as a bright rainbow, touching and not touching the ravishing flower exploding before you, and you are so lovely... In spite of the poems I sent you and the conversations about the depth of the soul, you chose him. You know, if I were only as handsome as the two of you, I would make exactly the same choice as you, and, inflamed, I would become the chief prosecutor of my very own burnished theory of personality.

A philosophical, highly concentrated fudged brownie

And then, from within the enormous emptiness, a dense sweetness begins, nearly burns, deep inside the throat, and from there to the eyes, since it is precisely when I am sad that the world seems to me more than ever so dejectedly optimistic.

Soap opera chocolate cappuccino roulade

Grandpa and Grandma are sitting in the living room. Coffee with some whipped cream on top, served in porcelain mugs. A Wagner operetta is playing on the gramophone. A book by Schiller is open on the rolltop desk. Grandpa and Grandma are cultured. Quietly they pack Grandpa’s suitcase. It is all very ordered, proper, as it should be. Exactly as it should be, after Grandpa’s passionate love affair with the neighbor, which, properly, he does not discuss with Grandma, as it should be. Exactly as it should be between cultured people, exactly as it should be in human culture.

Handsome tiramisu

Limoncello in a frozen glass. Paolo Conte is playing in the background while on the screen Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni drive their white Porsche convertible into the distance along the winding lanes of Tuscany and into the screen that shrinks to a single point of focus, the sweet and true flavor of life: longing and dreams.

Such a beautiful chocolate soufflé

You sit here facing me, as attractive as ever, reciting from the last article you read about the importance of sharing inner feelings in relationships versus the superficiality of externalized beauty, and now, as I look at you, wrapped in your snugness, I understand with complete lucidity the deepest meaning of the term “inner beauty.”

Love and hate doughnuts

Had one last night fresh from Elsa’s son’s bakery. They are getting so much better every year. Incredible! But will they ever top the memory of the immortal ones made by his mother, who passed away so long ago but never really agreed to leave?
