A Taste of Italian America

Writing 201: Poetry gave me a fun one today! I have to describe one of my favorite flavors. I’m cheating and describing something that has multiple flavors in it. This one is a fun one.

Flavor. Elegy. Enumeratio.

Savory and creamy
And oh my goodness dreamy
Your flavor is so pleasing
Please dress my fettuccine

Or spaghetti or rigati
Or linguine. Cavatappi.
Angel hair. I don’t care
But don’t you dare make me stare

At your goodness one more second
Heard you beckoned for my fork
I guess it’s time to get this done
Who am I to disappoint?

Slowly wrap to immaculate angles
The buttery goodness beings to dangle
Drip on down towards my tongue
Taste explosion! Palate won!

Such a superb way to savor
The perfection of these flavors
Parmesan and cajun salt
Oregano. Oh that’s not all
Some cream cheese and parsley
Heavy cream if you please

When you mix all this together
Oh, I forgot the salt and pepper
Flavors blend into transcendence
Complete and utter ascendance

You can kindly take my word though
While I relish this Alfredo
