Not risotto, you fool. Radicchio.
Participation mystique: “a kind of psychological connection with objects in which the subject cannot clearly distinguish himself from the object.” To this I dedicate my work in the coming year.
Off to the sea, radicchio.
I know you
I know you well.
Off on a lazy swell, radicchio.
Ridding and riding, radicchio.
Rolling your r s, radicchio.
Rising aloft, radicchio.
Two c s and one d,
Rough and ready, on you prance
Upon the raucous waves you dance.
I dress in red and wait for thee.
