Such fruit these pears you bring
I never question why. You never say.
Brown bag, it bears two Anjou .
Wordlessly, a park, you lead.
Our cadence, it catches.
Always the grass. Always the shade.
So we sit, some ritual, it says what?
We never ask.
You watch the perfumed juice.
how it shines on my lips,
one drop on my chin.
You think about the taste;
How a kiss would be in this moment
