ode to oysters

No one pays a more loving homage to the succulent oyster than Drago’s Restaurant

a charbroiled dozen, with french bread to sop up the juice

only the shells remain

oysters en brochette

shrimp and crab are honored too

the men who shuck

and the men that grill

The future is unknown, what is to become of them all? Time is running out, seafood catch from the gulf is beginning to come up covered in oil. It is unfathomable that this might all come to an end.

Is anyone listening? Does anyone care enough to make this mess right?

Dear God, WHERE ARE YOU?????
