Naomi Shihab Nye calls the Poetry Crisis Line

KIM (counselor): Poetry Crisis Line, what is your emergency?
NAOMI SHIHAB NYE (caller): When someone recognizes you in a grocery store
nod briefly and become a cabbage.
KIM: Or you could just pretend you never slaw them?

[From “The Art of Disappearing” by Naomi Shihab Nye]
