  • Music:

pears (three different ones)

Some say
it was a pear
Eve ate.

pear1

Why else the shape
of the womb,
or of the cello
Whose single song is grief
for the parent tree?

pear2

Why else the fruit itself
tawny and sweet
which your lover
over breakfast
lets go your pear-
shaped breast
to reach for?

pear3
