  You could have a big dipper   

January 1st by Miro

I cut

The pineapple I bought

Last week

With the sharpest

Dull knife

In the kitchen

Slicing through

Spiky lizard skin

To sweet yellow.

I put a slice in my mouth

Tasting traces

Of fruit turning

Tarnishing the decadence

And the work

Presenting perhaps

An omen

For things to come.
