Olives. How are poems like olives?

No, this is no more a riddle than a meal. Olives come with and without pits. Poems come with and without narrative. Logic is simple as a dominant hand.

Olives can be the center of a meal (pits or pitted). Simply add to the olives of your choice: feta cheese, tomatoes,fuyu persimmons, cooked green beans, fresh parsley, a twist of pepper. The color alone is worth the mouth's wait.

  1. Surety of the tree

    oil on the hair
    oil on the lips
    skin the sweetness of savagery

    a column of cold marble
    night when it is winter
    and you, a basket full
