Beatrix Potter
long before Peter proffered “exquisite
drawings” and her discovery
symbiotic mycology
in her paper
“Germination of the spores of Agaricineae

a voice unseen
unseeable at Kew requisitely
eschewed “unnatural union
between a captive Algal damsel and a tyrant
Fungal master”

Beatrix Potter
“It is extraordinary how botanists have . . . not in the least
seen the broad bearing of it.”

Beatrix Potter
“I was not shy, not at all. I had it up and down
with him. His line was on the outside
of civil . . . . I informed

him that it would all be in the books in ten years, whether or
no, and departed
giggling. I ought to wear
blue spectacles on these occasions.”

"Beatrix" first appeared in 2009 in 1913 a journal of forms, issue 3
