A Kansas Nationale ‘Clay Rationale’

by admin

Oh, just a little coffee after yoga…


Just when resolved

To reduce an addiction

Après yog’awakened

this sleeping affliction


I’d actually forgotten

antique candlestick

of course, it was gone

for it ’twas Dandy Pick


So congrats to that owner

(can you just share a shot?)

To add to these photos

Mercado’s the Spot.

Through the window at La Cabaña at The Mercado.

But back to obsessions,

compulsive disorders…

We know it’s not RIGHT

But we know we’re NOT  hoarders…


So the mind started walkin’

2 Memories, different era…

Soon fingers were fondling

the old Talavera.


& Greenware & “stuff”

in this perfect sized shop

Drew me back to Mercado

I just HAD to stop…


There I stroked Tonala

It was square, it was green

a primitive piece

‘for “apps”  it’d be keen!’

Vintage Primitive Mexican Dish from La Cabaña

Pamela, great

Just the right education

& An eye for timeless,

Andy’s Mine! ( ‘magination).


But somehow later that week

(candles still on my mind)

‘Only Barrio Bread…’

Ancient grains warrant time.

Zocalo Going out of Business Sale

For the stop to the Village

(that is, Joesler Place)…

Well, the parking lot full

But adjacent –this space…?!?


So, “I’ll just take a look”

“Gone” again! said the sign

But the windows were free

No harm, Can’t be mine.


This is Hospitality!

Took only a look

at pine-apples so Huge

the skill and the kiln

Vitrine subterfuge…

Talavera painting styles & quality vary throughout history.

But then with conviction

“just cut down on pottery”

So what was it that happened?

S’if I’d won the lottery??!!


Perfect! I should have bought the pair…still there!

I just HAD to have it

I was having a ‘paah’tee’

(Was I really going

to Be so Naughty?


Glow on Salmon and “moi-la”

Tenderloin rose

Quite the Jammin’ Gala.


Now Clay has past

Shoes are on pause

Bets off on beauté

Not in the ‘health’ clause


And while I feel shame

at times with the stuff

It does remind me of family

of trips and “enough!”


That is, it’s not ‘dowry’

When it’s after the fact

They’d bought the cow

(To say without tact)


My consumptive ways

Came later in life

So I must return ‘home’

& get rid of my wife!
