Bacon on the Bus!
Padhraig Nolan at The Scaldervillage Voice is driving the poetry bus this week. He instructed us to pick a number from 1 to 14 (mine was 8) and then click on this link. He said that these photo archives are part of a larger project called The Commons on Flickr. He warned us to "Be Careful! You could quite easily spend the rest of your day (and then some) browsing the visual riches therein." We were to go to the collection that matched our number & then go to the picture that matched our number. Here is my picture and the haiku it inspired (you really should click on the picture to get the full effect).
Crowd surrounding a woman skating around a giant skillet with slabs of bacon tied to her feet, holding a giant wooden spatula, Chehalis, Washington, ca. 1929-1932
She wanted to go
To the winery fest
But bacon is cool
Grapes would be cooler. Literally.
