Recalling my lunch with Albert Einstein and Mr Ghandi at Simpsons-in-the-Strand on 17th November 1931

Somehow fragments of anchovy – visible in entangled whiskers famous from

Pathe newsreel images – danced
as he

ate

Mr Ghandi looked
on
kindly

as I offered a napkin and
the fish danced on

insights flooded forth: spacetime unity

and how the Vedas agree

yet
still
the dancing anchovy
sticks
in my
mind photographically
