Me and Pete

Joanna Ruocco

A vacation where no complete protein will save us. What if eggs
flickered. I would not eat them. There is no believable
breakfast. There is coffee. There is Pete Seeger. He drinks coffee
from something metal with a concern for turtles

that is personal and good. Peter Seeger does not criticize.
"Why don't you have ears, turtles?" Pete Seeger knows
the secret of love. He says, "Your pink icing tastes disgusting
but it makes the cake float for three times as long."
