What do you pair with a pear poem?

A pair of eyeglasses and a glass bowl.

Do you pare pears? I don’t. Prefer the pair of textures –slightly grainy and smooth. While you're whittling or not whittling the pear, pick up Robert Kelly's pear poem.

  1. pairings are all over the place

    birds and nests from sticks
    freedom fighters and their muskets
    dimples and the smiles people adore

    all of the time I didn't think about fruit
    but just ate it and swallowed with pleasure
    maybe I should have been keeping the place clean

    where the peels dropped
    where the oxygen goes
    where life and its little sweetness

    takes a big break from perfect
    thank god
