classmates translating “Apogeo del apio”
Those imaginary stalks!
Unforgotten in thirty-odd years
Such trifles constitute eternity,
its small eternal bits

Written this very minute after dancing to Tanya Tucker, then putting on Heather Nova and walking away into my office. Looking for something to write, celery intruded by means of untraceable association.
The Spanish refers to a poem by Pablo Neruda, “Apogee of celery”.
Also a truly totally optional poem for Totally Optional Prompts.
