Annual Sowthistle, Göteborg, April 5th, 2003
Annual Sowthistle, for its fifth turn.
One of those common S-weeds
that got this self-imposed duty of mine
over its first winter - filling its quota
without a summer presentation.
There were flowers in November.
Appropriately put together
(thanks to Erik Ljungstrand)
with a page from the Book of Weeds
printed in 1926, and translated from the Norwegian
original by Emil Korsmo
with the subtitle
och kampen mot dem i nutidens jordbuk
The Life of Weeds
and the Struggle against them
in Contemporary Agriculture...
Me, I read it first as: The Life of Weeds
and their Struggles in Contemporary Agriculture.
