Sometimes it's essential to mix things up. Even in a salad. You think you'll be eating a spinach salad with lavender-scented pasta. Low & behold, with a simple twist of the fork, you reveal golden & red beets, persimmon, mint and look very carefully for a few choice walnuts.
Now, what about poetry? Sometimes the poem is screaming at you, sometimes it whispers to mix up the lines.
Whether word or salad (or both) -- eat well.
