'Do I dare to eat a peach?', 2018
Peaches were unfortunately out of season so I had to use a nectarine but I felt this added to the general artifice implied in the poem:
‘Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.’
- The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S Eliot, 1915
