Go Past the Southview Sleep Lab…

Go Past the Southview Sleep Lab/ Down to the End of Graceland and Over to Lamplighter Square Shopping Center Where Tailfeathers Flash White in Flight!
by Cocteau
And starting in April, on Monday nights, Meadowlark magically becomes a pizzeria,
there’s/ glory for ya!
During mating season, males sing from the tops of fence posts and shrubs, or perch on fences and powerlines. They’re often more easily heard than seen.
The song of the Eastern Meadowlark is one of pure melancholy.
Their scientific name is Sturnella magna.
(Which translates, oddly enough– to Edith Piaf in English.)
Look and listen for these spirited ‘larks in grasslands, meadows, pastures, along marsh edges throughout the West and Midwest, where cosmic flocks strut their stuff and feed on seeds and insects.
To find the new Meadowlark Restaurant, go down to the end of Graceland street just past the Southview Sleep Lab. Yep, right in front of the Salvation Army in the Lamplighter Square Shopping Center.
No seeds and insects here. Just
•Big, juicy sandwiches with house-made condiments
•Beautiful salads with great garnishes and dressings
•Fresh vegetables and side dishes
•Superb roasted and grilled meats
•Simply prepared fresh fish
•Sumptuous vegetarian cooking
•Simple, luscious desserts
Boo-yah! Everyday cooking– made from scratch,
and served with local pride.
Wings are rounded, somewhat small, the tail is stiff, petite and spiky.
Contrasting stripes of dark brown and light buff mark the head.
A black “V” crosses a bright yellow breast. Day-um!
And/ those outer tail feathers flash white in flight.

  1. I laughed out loud when I read the Edith Piaf comparison. I recently purchased a disc of her hits for 5 bucks and routinely clean the kitchen to these tunes. Anyways, it’s always a pleasure to read the offbeat and insightful poems of Cocteau. Keep em coming!
