SOPHIE’S WORDS: Spoken, Written and Sung

A
  p

e

taut shiny       skin laden
with april showers, plump with
summer sun. delicate green, striated
rose blush gently cascading from the core
where once lay the stalk, an umbilical, ripped
in its prime. lordly overview to humble bowl.
placed with care on top of a haphazard
mound, leaning a resigned stillness,
curving silence, waiting for fingers
to enfold cool succulent flesh,
teeth penetrating peel
that surrenders the
first crisp bite
