A Giuseppe Painting
There is a cyclops in our garden. A bodiless little plump cyclops with a Pinocchio nose. He tells us he didn't see who nibbled away at all our kale–he only has one eye, you see–but his growing nose indicates otherwise. It was little Peter Rabbit who ate our kale. I think Pinocchio is just happy Peter Rabbit didn't come for him instead.
All we need now is the carrot with the two legs we grew last summer and we will have an original Giuseppe Arcimboldo painting.
