The Poetry of the L.A. Farmers Market – 1974

Not knowing exactly what to say about this momento of the Farmers Market in Los Angeles sent by Trilby and Frank to the Hunnicut and Blaha Family, I’ve turned to Marianne Moore.

Even then, it is difficult. Therefore I’ve offered more than one of her lines here – you can choose the one you think fits best!

1. Durer would have seen a reason for living in a town like this.

2. I, too, dislike it.

Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt

for it, one discovers in

it, after all, a place for the genuine.

3.        There is a great amount of poetry in unconscious fastidiousness.

4.                  What sap

went through that little thread

to make the cherry red!

5. I inwardly did nothing.

O Iscariot-like crime!
