No Brazen Head

Roger Bacon, aka Doctor Mirabilis, ‘was a medieval English philosopher… who placed considerable emphasis on the study of nature through empiricism. In the early modern era, he was regarded as a wizard and particularly famed for the story of his mechanical or necromantic brazen head. He is sometimes credited as one of the earliest European advocates of the modern scientific method.’

Doctor Mirabilis,
failing to magically
conjure the dead,                    
pivoted wisely and
conjured empirical                      
science instead.

 A television commercial for potato chips in the 2000s featured Mr. Potato Head coming home to find Mrs. Potato Head eating potato chips,‘despite being a potato herself... At the end Mr. Potato Head joins in and tells her to keep it their “little secret”.’

Munchily crunchily,
Mr. Potato Head
yields to his wife when she            
tempts him with chips;
both are consumed in the
visceral smacking, then
sealing, of lips.
