Poetry: Leftover

25-Aug-2016

Leftover

Fruit left off the vine too long without being eaten

Left instead to decay

In the back of a crate

In some cheery farmer's market

With no air conditioning

 

Almost all sold

We did well

Good enough!

 

Now I must do the proper thing –

Collapse into myself

On the bruises and patches of skin

That have lost their softness.

 

The Dignified Thing.

 

Fade from view 

So the ones approaching ripeness

Won't be afraid.

 

A cautionary tale

 

Look away, now

Look away
