The fruit of life
I like apples .
Their cold, firm, sumptuous flesh
I love pears.
How they yield in your mouth as you bite the crisp skin
and the sweet juices run down your chin,
from the secrets within.
I love the bag of cherries;
So bitter, sweet and sour,
stoning my mouth with a reddening frown.
But bananas are so sad, as they squish in my mouth.
There have been so many banana skins, all through my life.
