Mon Dieu! Fondue!

Inspiration for tonight’s verse comes from what’s on tv: Stage 1 of cycling’s Tour de Romandie. The Tour de Romandie is a six-stage race, passing through the French-speaking cantons of Switzerland, a country not exactly lacking in food culture. Cheese and chocolate, it’s all about the cheese and chocolate. I could go on for days about chocolate, so in the interest of limiting the babble (too late right?) it’s gonna be cheese–fondue, to be exact.

Mon Dieu! Fondue
Quivering fondue forks, laden with
Rustic peasant bread cubes sit poised
On the ceramic pot rim
Emmenthaler, Gruyere
Bubble, enticing.
Hurry up, and
take the
plunge!
