Grotte de Rouffignac (Dordogne)

Grotte de Rouffegnac (Dordogne)

Your poem about carrots
made me think about tobacco –
stalks so tall, rows so long,
long as the eye could see…

I only lasted a couple of weeks –
the fat worms on the broad green leaves –
and the hot sun beating on me,
on my head, the days so long.
