The Chef

The Chef

He's a triumphant Italian chef,
expression glazed in a determinant glare
while chunky hands like gracious G clefs
spark in culinary genesis
with a life beat staccato
pounding dough
before twirling it on one finger,
a flattened cloud where angels float
awaiting splatters of tomato sauce
to soil their wings
while dodging pepperoni slices
in a flattened pan flurry.
Those big hands sprinkle cheese
in scatterings of genius put to music
for an aria of love, opera of life,
this symphony called The Chef's Pizza.
