Taking Out The Rubbish

Unclasping its accordion

of empty

pink compartments,

The grapefruit is a lady's

lustrous purse:

Eggshells nested one

within

the other -

Kleenex tissue crumpled

into wilted

white carnations; and a pure

aesthetic

pepper purled

with mold:

Every detail freed

from function's

hold.
