#160--Alchemy Today

Home Fries from Afar

Gerard de Nerval
writes in Aurelia
that the human imagination
has produced nothing
that is not true
but today
I ordered an omelette
the waitress asked
do you want home fries
and onions
and I said sure

the omelette was like
a padded envelope
the home fries
were little once-frozen cubes
of potato possibly potato

and I said to the waitress
how can you call these
pellets home fries?

well, they're fried
she says smiling
and taking my money

No. 215. The Great Books Course.

He had begun to grow unaccountably tired of painting--and of sculpting too. He had never imagined he could feel this way.
All he wanted to do now was to read.
And the books he wanted to read were the tough, strong, sinewy books of the past. He wanted ideas, music, enlightenment, wisdom, experience.
Not entertainment
He was reading books he'd always meant to read but had never before gotten around to: books by Tolstoy, by Boris Pasternak, Isaac Babel, George Eliot, George Meredith, Robert Browning, Shelley, Coleridge, John Donne. He was in a somnolent ecstasy. Every sentence he read felt like a kind of healing. Any phrase, for example, from Browning's epic poem, The Ring and The Book (1868), left him cleansed and invigorated. This one is about jewelry: "Virgin as oval tawny pendent tear / at beehive-edge when ripened combs o'erflow...." "Beehive-edge"?
