what was and what is

renoir peachRenoir

that grimace
like when you bite into
a gooseberry
eyes clench
mouth a straight line of
sour overload
that’s the legacy
you left behind
for i have found
the sweetest of fruits
succulent and smooth
the kind like when
you bite into
a summer peach
and laugh as
the juice trickles
down your chin
