Cultural Excercise

Good afternoon
today’s exercise will be about culture
for example, a painting, a literary tradition,
mythology, quotations from Latin sources
open your Internet encyclopedias
at page www culture slash inspiration
don’t over-quote, be sparing,
feign familiarity in handshakes

Haven’t we met somewhere?
oh yes, at what’s his name’s exhibition
or was it at the museum of ancient whatsit?
hello professor, meet my wife
she’s also a poet, you know, our son’s just
received his Phd at a famous university
next Thursday evening we’re having
a poetry reading at Enrico’s
only a few selected up and comings
cultural refreshments will be served

Excuse me, good afternoon ambassador
may I introduce my wife
she’s also a poet you know
