Beef Burgundy Hero

Micki Myers

Jutting diagonally across the page, the sandwich,

encased in a red-and-white checked napkin

tucked into a basket, has been waiting

an awfully long time for its picture to be taken

and has developed a slightly opaque sheen,

so that what had once been a hard-core split centerfold

of beef in toasted baguette lips all shiny and

running with juice, is now looking a bit embarassed,

and just wants to be paid and call it a day.

The parsley-sprig pubic hair looks great however.
