Fruit and Center

So, here's the inside scoop of how the olive tree views a redwood.  They go right for the center.  Why wouldn't they?  Perhaps not a bird's-eye-view, but one that's pit-centered.  Now, think about the fruit and centers of a poem?  Imagine each letter a pit anticipating its center.  Yup, pits and poems.

    I should go outside now
    and water the lemon tree
    but it's not right to do it at noon
    and my curtains make the white room
    sultry and ready for something--
    he's napping as usual under a sheet
    and she by the back door--
    no one should move the markers around
    at a time like this
