apple, pear, grape, bana….

shiny
delectable 
marzipan
fruits
were
always
a staple
marzipan fruit 
at my house
during the holiday
season

can you imagine
anything more delicious 
than biting into a piece
of fruit — instead
of the expected
aromatic juicy
flesh — a dry
far from moist
almond taste
strikes your palette
in a fashion that you
would never have
been poised to accept
ever in your life
but — decided
you were going
to enjoy
