In haste, this morning…
Yesterday, I ran a group with some young people in which we looked at Wallace Stevens’ ‘Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird’.
Then we explored looking at something in five ways (no time for thirteen in the session!)…and this is what I wrote:
Five Ways of Looking at the Coffee Grinder I. Caffeine sentinel In the corner, the coffee grinder Keeps watch, all night. II. He buys us very thoughtful Gifts, like this: a coffee grinder Which gets used less and less. III. Once hand-cranked, now the coffee grinder Takes its power from the mains. IV. In the aisle of Tesco, I puzzle Over the Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade logo; Which will channel the least Evil through the coffee grinder. V. A man and a man Are one. A man and a man and a coffee grinder Are a family.
