Do I dare to eat a peach?

Two years ago, when I was afflicted with horrible sunburn1 and confined to the house, I started a tradition of decorating notebook covers with strange collages. As I was completely sunburn-free last August, I missed my opportunity. But this year I’ve revived the tradition! Not only that, but I’ve revived it with poetry. This year’s notebook brought to you courtesy of T.S. Eliot and The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.2

"I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each"
I do not think that they will sing to me
"I do not think that they will sing to me"

My sunburn notebook from two years ago:

And one extra this year because I had so many leftover magazine clippings:

  1. I fell asleep on the beach for four hours or so… []
  2. I hope my mother didn’t need those magazines. []
