inspired by the poem:

 

MORNING MANGO

 

Oblong fruit

red-cheeked Humpty-Dumpty

wavering on porch railing.

Balanced in hand

its green tip tenders into yellow

then bursts into the rose of dawn. 

A Harlequin costume to catch the eye 

divert the mouth.

But not for long.

 

A slice of knife liberates 

the smell of sea breeze

rich with morning sun. 

Teeth comb strands of golden flesh 

while sweet juice slides down the throat. 

 

If I slept beneath a mango tree, would perfection pale?
