Food: I recently started liking mushrooms, which is very exciting, a whole new world is open. I don't think I've met a cuisine I don't like yet, though I admit to being kind of chicken about stuff like duck feet. The other day I intentionally bought a zucchini and enjoyed it. What is the world coming too.
A wild sky full of stars at rising
And Venus and the gibbous moon at sunrise.
Gulls following a motor boat against the wind,
Tress with branches rooted in air;
Sitting in the sun at noon
With the furiously smoking shadow of the shack chimney,
Eagles drive down wind in one,
Terns blow backward
A new kind of tobacco at eleven,
And my love returning on the four o'clock bus--
My God, why have you given this to us?
