I am an avocado. {poetry}

C. Riker

I believe when the avocado was birthed,
all the gods and goddess cried.

Not out of sadness but joy.

The outer evergreen veil
all bumpy, almost leathery;
deep inside though,
there is an innocence.

The buttery smooth inner essence
is encased to protect
this primal core of
tenderness and love.

For a surreal moment,
I am an avocado.

Held safely in my hand.
