The banana stand is back on its corner. Funny how around here
corners are just edges until banana stands busy them just being there. Stupid
place to sell bananas. They’re the fragile fruit, only made to brown unbruised in
city heat. This damn city’s heat makes people plastic wrap bananas.
Protect the peel, poor things. I want to peel and peel those damn bananas
dig in muddy fingers turn form into mush drip them down my wrists make them
dry there. No one is buying. The little things will shrivel and rot and no one is concerned.
There’s plastic holding in the stench.
