NOT TO MENTION

Not to mention

the bitter,

arrowy

spinach

leaves I’ve been

eating in my salads

and omelettes

for two

weeks,

unknowing

I was consuming

an ornament of

reproduction

from my

garden.

Especially

the

simple

oversight

is a morning

of understanding.

You’ll forget the name

Milwaukee because

somebody knows

very well

what

it

meant

to an earlier.
