Diminished Returns
Cadbury Creme Eggs are back in stores for Easter. But the pleasure the prospect of eating them to the point of personality crisis is substantially compromised by the fact that I recently had a few Cadbury Creme Eggs for Valentine's Day. I'm reminded of a poem I wrote back when I still had hair:

"Even the Cadbury Creme Eggs here know no time. . ." Sometimes there's a reason for seasons.

It's universal....In London they load up with Creme Eggs on about Twelfth Night and Christmas begins in September.

Love the poem, by the way. [Tips hat in acknowledgment.]

I was reading in my Time-Life The Cooking of Japan from the late 1960s the other day. It discusses the Japanese fixation on seasonally specific foods. I'm not sure that still holds, but the account of how the postwar Japanese waited patiently for a very brief strawberry season was compelling to me. Slow food is also seasonal food. Of course, Cadbury Creme Eggs barely count as food, so I'm not sure whether the connection is even worth contemplating.

As for the poem, well, thanks! Making it public again -- the first time was several years ago, in a different context -- is a great example of me at my most vain. But when Thom Gunn says he likes your poem, you need to wring every drop of moisture from the rag on which he inscribed his thoughts.
