Spoiled Fruit

Spoiled Fruit

It was hard to confront that black banana.

My days away from home had changed the shape

and I’m sure the taste.

The other fruits looked no better.

All was dried up and shrinking fast.

but, there’d been no time for the fridge.

And as his skin will now follow the way of the fruit,

the idea of spoiled fruit and a now spoiled life 

is still too much to bear.
