I live on toasted lizards, Prickly pears, and parrot gizzards, And I’m really very fond of beetle-pie. [Charles Edward Carryl (1841-1920), U.S. poet

“All the unhallowed beauty I have found;
All free – discordant shrills
and form-defying wonders above ground,
like writhen trees with draggled foliage
struggling along the courses of wayback creeks;
scarlet – and – green
sky – streaking parrot – fires with parrot shrieks
echo – shattering the shoulders of the hills;
and desert – sunset – rage
Rage for my mind, be clamant, do not cease
you are my holiest habitat of peace.”
