Red onions, Leonardo said,
Surpass most paintings
In beauty — their beauty
Or fairness, as it’s called as well —
Fairness, which is also known
As justice, a balance,
a fair distribution —
And likewise injustice, unfairness
is ugly: the thousands of bodies
of dolphins rotting
Up and down the coast of France,
The slums of the planet,
The stripped seas?
How many onions can one person eat?
