I think I'd care more about eating potatoes if the potatoes had less superficial values in life.
Obviously, I do not eat but it's the "what if" that matters more than the "what does", don't you think? We already know what I do. I do too many interviews as it is.
So the answer above is for if I am ever asked about potatoes. In the summer, I think potatoes have a better run in life. They do seem happier. Why anybody would ever want to eat potatoes is beyond me, I'm afraid.
in the summer
i look at my potatoes
and make soccer dresses
in the winter
i write haiku
which isn't haiku
and listen to leonard cohen
the potatoes are growing again.
