Mister Ron's Basement #1699
William Dean Howells -- 'I began to read, skeptically at first, but more and more persuaded, and at last could not break away from those fascinating rhymes masking as prose, in a carnival concourse of pathos, and fun, and satire, and aspiration, but, above all, sense, sense, sense.'
This week we are offering more of Walt's 'prose poems' from the 1911 collection, 'Walt Mason - His Book.'
Today we explore the results of 'Bad Cooking.'
*John Kelly of The Washington Post has written a lively piece about the Basement. You can read it here.
