dr_con Posted April 23 Share Posted April 23 Fishing for Words4/23/2023, Con/Jur/d Despite the number of times I’ve rewritten it, and the styles tried, I can’t improve on the original “Like finding in the back of the freezer a forgotten pint of Amaretto Cherry ice cream the one with the little chocolate bits” as said by Tracy Mitchell, or the feeling of being watched by dairy cows from whom the ice cream might be made or the rush of discovering a feral Thornapple grove with my wife who doesn’t like cherries, tho appreciates the chocolate or the Strange tickling sensation spreading up my spine upon reading, the great green plants underfoot are False Hellebore whose toxic roots were eaten by some First Peoples to decide who would lead choosing the one who was least sick, to decide among equals And it seems the words who remain innocent despite my best efforts to twist and pervert them, lack a certain physicality, much beloved by Sycamore tree’s fluffy seeds filling the warm spring air on the uncertain path to this hidden stream lush with trout.
