Slice Of Life - Day 1

Life is a grapefruit.
Sweet, sticky, pink pulp
dripping juice on my fingers.

I stab the orb 
and saw it in half.
Carefully slicing 
around the rind
separating flesh from fiber.

Or maybe I peel and pick,
popping pieces 
like candy, then
quickly devouring 
bite after bitter bite.

Always I squeeze
the last drops
