poppy shot, surprise, salad

Posted by PicasaPoppy talk.

My brother Ken visits and shows me the book he is reading - some poems by the American poet Weldon Kees. I haven't heard of him and to sample his work pick out a poem from the contents because of its personal appeal. It is called Problems of a Journalist. The first lines produces another quiver of recognition:"I want to get away somewhere and re-read Proust"
Said an editor on Fortune to a man on Time".I shall be reading some more Weldon Kees.

A salad of roast vegetables - peppers, courgettes, aubergine, tomatoes, garlic, dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil - makes a change from lettuce.

Read on and I'm sure you'll find those same dissatisfied journalists all have 200 typescipt pages of the GAN (Great American Novel) stowed away in their bottom drawer - along with a fifth of Jack Daniels.
