poem: at muhammad’s fruit stand

a black lady wonders aloud

how to eat the pears he sells.

pears with cheese

best combo, i say

as i remember nonno giovanni saying

“solo il contadino sa come buone pere e formaggio sono”

only the farmer knows how good pears and cheese are

nonno’s pears so good

fresh off his trees,

better even than the organics ones

but i will eat mine w pecorino

and smile.
