"Legumes that are absolutely untreated and need to be soaked make a much better
soup, but they are a little hard to find in this age of overimprovement."
I loved that sentence because, when you think about it, there are many things we tend to ruin simply by "overimprovement."
As a poet, I have a tendency to tinker with some of my poem drafts until I get completely sick of them. Thank goodness I save previous versions to return to.
