The Head of a Pin. Wha’?

While reading Danilo Mantoni

In Poetry is Dead Volume One

I became aware of

The orange on my desk

Its thingness

Its facticity

Its outer skin

Both verb and noun

But not noun

Until it is verbed.

So I verbed it

And discarded the noun

On the grounds

That I don’t find its taste appealing.
