"I peeled / a banana. And cursed God—His arrogance, / His gall—to still expect our devotion / after creating love."
"O, to take what we love inside, / to carry within us an orchard, to eat / not only the skin, but the shade, / not only the sugar, but the days
"Two or three times in my life I discovered love. / Each time it seemed to solve everything. / Each time it solved a great many things / but not everything."
