“I make a crazy Chinese sweet and sour sauce on the hot stove, compounded of turnip greens, sauerkraut, honey, molasses, red wine vinegar, pickled beet juice, sauce concentrate (very dark and bitter)…” Desolation Angels
Big fan of beets
Beets roasted in oven
Beet tops cooked like spinach
Both tossed with extra virgin olive oil and the sea is my brother salt
Painted a painting of beets with beet cooking liquid
And colored a pair of plain white canvas sneakers with beet juice and red marker scribbles
Wore those shoes to Woodstock midnight ramble and local cried out, “ORIGINAL!”
Big reader of Beats
Sometimes sit down and eat beets and read Beats and listen to bebop
And feel beatifically happy with great crimson red beet vitamin splash
And colorful pomegranate poetry in ruby motion
And great happy soaring tinkling jazz
