Quandary Resolution 1797
contentation, ridibund, tenderloin, aeon
After the delicate texture of Ambroise Thomas’ Mignon at the Met, they had diner, and to their contentation they found a table for two, and they set down and to amuse herself, the lovely and always ridibund Apolline ordered a Filet Mignon, while René stuck to his favorite one, Chateaubriand, and while waiting they kept salivating and talking, he thinking about the thick steak cut from the tenderloin, sliced into thin strips and topped with melted butter and parsley and Béarnaise sauce, and as it took some time until their stakes arrived, they had a lovely conversation exchanging ideas about Goethe’s ‘Wilhelm Meister’ and Faust and Plato’s aeon, his eternal world of ideas, and so engaged in conversation, from some distance, their words seemed to be singing a graceful duet.
