In Raymond Queneau's analysis,
Novels and short stories are about love,
And, as he says, "Hunger is real life."
Separate, incomparable urgencies.
In books we admire words like swanlight
But try and pay for dinner with a poem --
When the owner comes to discuss the matter
Under the grass canopy, offer to wash dish.
The truth, though often mentioned at the bookie's,
Is best left aside for arguments among rookies.
