Nectarine


On a verandah, on a train,


For tomorrow, or from yesterday,


I am about to bite a nectarine


Peel away a skin of discovery,


Smell the flesh of mystery,


Suck the juice of nostalgia,


This slides down my greedy cheek


Or was it a salty tear?


Because of this nectarine, I am young again

On my swing


In the garden


Trying to remember the words to my favourite song


And I am not on a swing


But a wicker chair


Telling a sad story to my lovely nectarine.
