Old World Market: a #TBT #haibun for #ImageCurve (5/18/17)

food stories

An aroma of sharp cheddar and freshly baked bread. Wood rafters and paneling rise to a slanted ceiling. A Buddha on one wall, and other cultural icons spread around.

We make our way past a salad bar, pastier and fresh-cut meats. $18.99 for veal rib and ground lamb are among the offerings.

Arriving at the cheeses, we sample that sharp cheddar. Next, a few feet away, we try extra virgin olive oil with slices of that freshly baked bread.

Satiated tongues
leaving empty-handed

  1. Hi Frank! Very wonderful work! Honest expression shared openly. I am having an existential crisis tonight. I invite you to come visit me, cross my bridge of dreams, and listen to Joni sing like an angel!
