Crave – Kathie Giorgio

Crave

getting older
old
you find yourself
craving fruit
(clementines, peaches, pears, pears, pears!)
vegetables
(zucchini, green beans, cucumbers)
instead of the meat
of your youth
(ribs, porterhouse, ¼ pound burger, rare)
eating safe now
instead of then
but craving then
again
