The peregrine bites the head off a pigeon.
The pigeon bites the head off a baguette.
The centrality, the persistence—
The Role of the Baguette.
“In this ever-changing world in which we live in”
a stale baguette becomes a weapon.
And a wet baguette?
Just another sly aside before the lighting of a cigarette.
Kitchen Tip No. 37—Save a Stale Baguette:
halve it, sprinkle with water, toast.
To nourish the masses! (At least the masses
that can find a boulangerie.) To nourish the masses
is a comfort afforded not much to pigeons,
and pretty much lost on peregrine, too.
