Poetry of Sausages

By Charles Simic

Even their names are poetry to me: chorizo, merguez, rosette, boudin noir, kielbasa, luganega, cotechino, zampone, chipolata, linguica, weisswurst.  Whose mouth has not watered in a well-stocked butcher shop or fancy-food market at the sight of many varieties of sausages: fresh and smoked, stuffed with pork, beef, lamb, liver, veal, venison and poultry and seasoned with herbs, garlic, pepper and spices too numberous to count?

Until about 10 years ago, there was a small store specializing in regional French sausages on Rue Delambre in Montparnasse, that famous little Parisian street where at one time Isadore Duncan lived, Man Ray had his first studio and Hemingway met Fitzgerald in a bar called the Dingo.  Each time I entered that shop, I felt as if I were about to lose control of myself and make a scene.  I’d point to one kind of sausage, change my mind and point to another, then ask for both.  Often, after they had been expertly wrapped and I was on my way out, I rushed back and bought a couple more.  My visits were a year apart, but the owners remembered me well and approached me each time with a smile of recognition and a touch of apprehension.
