Uta eats an avocado

Uta holds the avocado in her palm
like a Faberge egg
lode green  full of mystery

she turns it round and around
then cleanly slices the top
and scoops out

the treasure with a teaspoon
consumes the flesh slowly
running her tongue

into the hollow of metal
to capture every morsel
of this precious moment.
