TO BE HUNGRY IS TO BE GREAT

The small, yellow grass-onion,
spring’s first green, precursor
to Manhattan’s pavements, when
plucked as it comes, in bunches,
washed, split and fried in
a pan, though inclined to be
a little slimy, if well cooked
and served hot on rye bread
is to beer a perfect appetizer-
and the best part
of it is they grow everywhere.

-William Carlos Williams

And I would never scold the onion
for causing tears,
it is right that tears fall
for something small and forgotten.
How at meal, we sit to eat,
commenting on texture of meat or herbal aroma
but never on the translucence of onion,
now limp, now divided,
or its traditionally honorable career:
For the sake of others,
disappear.

(from The Travelling Onion by Naomi Nye, but you knew that :)

THE JUICE IS ELSEWHERE.

A mood soon to be forgotten.
