Three fruits, p. 29
29Three Fruits Orange-yellow juicy flesh Melon falls in pieces There's a brown flecked banana Lying in its basket And the wrinkled peaches Shed their skins in hot water All these fruits are ready To eat, to wish for, to remember A handsome man ordering breakfast In a Santa Fe café "I'll just have 3 fruits today Whatever you have..." Let it go from long ago All the peelings into the compost Seedlings grow — Omen of new fruit.
