Figs again. How are figs an inspiration to any poem?

Simple, the poet is happy while eating figs knowing these fruit will not last forever. Figs embody how the ripe is necessary yet transitory. One could get quite biblical about figs, but it's already been done.

So eating a fig or two she asks, "Are poems transitory by nature?"

    implications of the sentence
    go elsewhere
    and I, purloined avatar
    look inward once again

    attainment has an accent
    and the stone walls shift
