Eat Red Grapefruit With Your Hands [Poetry]

Cut it in half and half again.

Eat it all now or save some for later.

Use your hands.

Let the succulent juice run sticky on your fingers,

cheeks, lips and nose.

Feel the flavorful pulp touch your tongue,

fill your mouth, and

slide down your throat.

Peel back the thin layer separating the segments.

Bite in and fill yourself to overflowing.

Heavenly bliss.
