The UNHEARD POET and Rackham's CAT
Jalapeno cheese bread
Arther Rackham, 1867-1939
One morning I walked into the Village to buy a loaf of Jalapeno cheese bread I had ordered the day before. Passing the coffee shop I noticed a young man seated at one of the patio tables with a cup of coffee, small typewriter, and a sign: Free Poems.
He caught my curiosity as I walked on down the street to the bakery.
Returning, with my fresh loaf of bread, he was still here...sitting alone. I started to walk on by, then hesitated, 'Why pass him by?"
I sat down. He smiled, "Would you like for me to write a poem for you?"
He asked a question or two...I offered I was a grandmother, showed him the bakery's beautiful Jalapeno bread, and mentioned I was a landscape artist.
He put a sheet of paper into the typewriter, his fingers on the small keyboard...and typed without stopping...then handed the paper to me.
