'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
