~ A Barrel of Odds & Ends

~  A Barrel of Odds & Ends

i find myself at mid-day
at a sheltered table
in the middle of a court yard
looking up at the Andes
all around me.

me & Kitty order cold beer
and i glance down
at the sweat on the outside of the amber bottles.

“salud!” i say.

“salud!” says Kitty.

we hit the bottles against each other
and each of us takes a long pull of beer.

i think of Kitty as my son,
he’d be about the right age,
the kind of son a man wants,
a troubadour
and a Che Guevera rolled into one.

we order alpaca steaks
with fresh local vegetables & potatoes,
potatoes of volcanic earth.
one of my father’s stories floats through my head,
about finding potatoes while digging a latrine
in a field in France during world war two
and cooking them up in his helmet.
as officers, they wore ties on combat missions ...
i find myself smiling;
why not wear a tie to work?

i look over towards the kitchen
and i see a young woman in a white chef’s hat
behind a screened window at a sink,
scrubbing potatoes.
she looks over and smiles, & then returns to her work

a short while later, our meal comes,
grilled alpaca steaks & gravy & vegetables & potatoes
~ all cooked together
and i find myself thinking about Huck Finn
sitting down to dinner with the Widow Douglas
and Huck thinking that there weren’t nothing wrong
with the supper, “nothing only everything was cooked
by itself. in a barrel of odds and ends it is different;
things get mixed up,
and the juice kind of swaps around,
and the things go better.”

i finish my meal
by running a big crust of bread around my plate,
sopping up the remnants of the gravy.
for a moment, i close my eyes
and against my face i feel a soft Andean breeze,
a breeze bringing with it
the scent of rock crushed by ancient glaciers,
& i forget who i am.

i go back to the kitchen
to thank the young woman.
“hubo mas en la cena
de lo que se podia imaginar,” i say to her.

i brush some white flour from her cheek,
and make this picture.

Teak Table From RS Associates Ltd. Montreal Circa 1967

Teak Table From RS Associates Ltd. Montreal Circa 1967

This is a teak end table form a Montreal based furniture company called RS Associated Ltd. The table top is supported by four small bars so that it looks like it is floating around the teak pillar. I believe these were introduced around the time of Expo 67. I've seen at least three different designs by this company that revolve around a large teak barrel.
