Poem: Teach Me, Kiwi

2013-05-16 14.28.00 Teach Me Kiwi poem

 

Teach Me, Kiwi

Whether others see me
As ugly or beautiful
How
To get sweeter
Juicier

To give joyfully
Without regret
Exquisitely
Until the last drop

Teach me, kiwi

About the poem:

This week, I’ve been eating ripe ripe ripe kiwis. I break them open and eat them like a cavewoman. And feel like a woman. I wondered if the kiwi was sad to be finished. But no, it didn’t feel like that at all. It was like it was screaming in triumph. I want to go out like that, juicy and screaming in triumph! “The end!”

    • Yes Bharati! I was grieving the absence of tomatoes all winter here. I then realized that I use tomatoes almost daily, but Korean food doesn’t. So great to have the cherry tomatoes now! I haven’t tried the pineapple. I wanna rip one open and eat it (like the kiwi), but that might be dangerous! I’ll let you know!
