Abstract

32 behind the late addition of St. Peter. This all occurs, by the way, thousands of years after the first image of Christ was burned into the catacombs of San Sebastiano. And if it's true that among his apprentices Caravaggio kept a lover, one he painted over and over, we imagine the boy in his own brief celebrity, oiled by the inevitable camera flash, burning him deeper into the church our coming here has made of us. Later, you say the Pantheon would look best above our bed. Stefi Weisburd Dance of the Lettuce Fan Renee's Garden seed package; Baby Mesclun Lettuces, "Cut and Come Again" . . . we live on the expectant edge, dear Senator, rich in milk that flows freely from the world's bitter insults. Come, take of our gentle opium, refreshing and cool, which so delighted Emperor Augustus, he built an altar to it. Ah, here's your Ruby Red. Nearly always eaten raw and slow to bolt, see how leisurely she relinquishes each leaf, each translucent hint of her tender core. Don't you find she agitates the very air? Now, the finale, as one frilled fan flies after another, until 33 a single leaf
