Tarragon, Are You a Wild Boar?

A Poem by Vi Khi Nao

Tarragon, are you a wild boar?

My friend, lemon zest, has not been that

Thyme, Cognac, falooda glass noodle

These things prowl the night without cape

Gooseberries or bacalao

 

Tarragon, are you a wild boar?

Each time I eat you, I stop breathing

Little owl, where is your happiness?

Wake up + make people believe

In you, gastrique + steaklette

Is that chive embarrassed?

To be with the savoy cabbage?

 

Tarragon, are you a wild boar?

I was born female, hyper-focused

Let me trim your skirt, halibut

It’s dragging salt against my oregano

Buttered by butter in no butter

 

Tarragon, are you a wild boar?

It’s too bad the caper isn’t wearing

A cape when the Peruvian potatoes

Are sitting on a bed of coals while

Floating down a river coconut

On the verge of falling off

A truffle, which is a

Shadow floating inside of a shadow

 

Arctander

Tarragon (estragon) is a colorless, or very pale yellow to greenish-yellow liquid, with a sweet-anisic, green-spicy, slightly celery-like odor, very similar to that of the fresh herb.

The flavor of this oil is sweet and slightly spicy-aromatic, reminiscent of anise and basil with that faint celery note.

Tarragon (Estragon) is used perfumery, usually in trace amounts, in chypre, l’origan types, fougères, lilac bases, green floral bases, etc.

Blends well with galbanum, lavender, vanilla, clove, oakmoss etc

The flavor is extensively used in liquors and to replace the herb in commercial canning production.
