a grapefruit moment
My spoon digs into three perfectly cut wedges of grapefruit
The grapefruit lovingly prepared by you
Waiting for me in the refrigerator
In a white bowl covered with plastic wrap.
As I slip the spoonful, distractedly into my mouth
While reading something about art
I experience the burst of pure cold sweetness.
I put the book down and savor this moment.
This is all I have right now
And it is enough.
