The taste of Italy

We are delighted to sit down,

To welcome

The one from Italy,

Constantly evolving with all the local color.

We can

Spice up your mornings,

If you like.

You’ll love a celebration,

Rapido e semplice!

 

May you never become

A long lost relative.

– Carolina Perrone

The patience of ordinary things by Pat Schneider

It is a kind of love, is it not?
How the cup holds the tea,
How the chair stands sturdy and foursquare,
How the floor receives the bottoms of shoes
Or toes. How soles of feet know
Where they’re supposed to be.
I’ve been thinking about the patience
Of ordinary things, how clothes
Wait respectfully in closets
And soap dries quietly in the dish,
And towels drink the wet
From the skin of the back.
And the lovely repetition of stairs.
And what is more generous than a window?
