Dylan Thomas looking at an avocado

This is another in the Holiday series for the Monthly, also maybe the second in the series of inhabitants of the British isles looking at hand-held objects, the first being John Cleese looking at a piece of string.

edit: Just read today, Nov. 9, is the anniversary of Dylan Thomas' death. So this turns out to be a timely illustration

Through the green fuse I'm driven to write:
I imagine the avocado as a hand grenade. Thomas ponders its power as he prepares to heave it into the heart of winter. Or something like that...

This is totally fabulous, conceptually and actually. Wow.

Have you published the John Cleese drawing?
