red fruit.

had a plum today.
not some cheap, bull shit one from
the grocery store,

but a real, good plum.
with red bejeweled flesh
and tart, tender skin.

i sucked it til
the fruit was no more, clenching
the pit in my teeth.

I really really like this one. I think William Carlos Williams would too.

my mom always makes a point of telling me when there are cold plums available in the fridge.
