The Taste of Figs
In the dead of winter he ate dried figs,
watching through windows where snowflakes settled,
and melted against transparent warmth.
He remembered the geese,
flying overhead, beckoning,
while he lingered,
Outside, the twilit air was suddenly
An apple glowed, rose flame
under the frost.
I tasted figs.
