Be Perfect

Become ripe,
as the bearer of all fruit
ripens. Be full
and shapely.
Come into your colors
in your own time,
as the source
of all hues
shimmers through you.

the company of others
from different vines.
Enjoy the textures of diverse skins.
Be food with them.
The meal you make together
far surpasses
what you’d be alone.
Fear not the knife
and the mingling

of your oils.
