An Étude to Fruit

Happy Fruit
hear the sound

We with our étude
doon, doon, doon, doon

Why such words?
wry smile found

Merry arrangement
jubilant, untroubled, theater in the round

A cacophony of mixed pomiculture
that doesn't distinguish the one

Without its integument
to loll around

There's a poem found in produce
a reward, an outcome

A fleshy legacy

In an earthy cathedral where offerings

Fruit and a Jug on a Table (1890-94)
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
