    Default Undressing the Peach (CTG)

    Undressing the Peach


    ADVERTISING




    It's around a hundred outside
    as I sit in the cool lunchroom and
    undress the peach on a paper plate.

    I peel away the ripe vermillion-magenta skin,
    ease it from the succulent flesh,
    slicing with clear plastic knife into

    the luscious meat and recall how
    Mother so enjoyed peach season --
    now near a year since her passing.

    My fingers are sticky with juice,
    the sweet flesh stained blood-pink
    and bitter closest to the pit.

    * Edited to make it "closest to the pit" instead of "closest to the hard pit."

    I shall have to look out for a silver fruit knife for you mate.

    Thanks, Oudeis. I can manage with the paper plate and the plastic knife. It was my ankle and it's doing fine now, thanks.... complete recovery.
