A Boat down the River of Yellow Silt

The first box held tiny yellow apples

from the tree behind your home.

Now inside the vestibule

a brown box with mochi, manju,

and a persimmon

like the hearts of various creatures.

I will eat one sweet tonight, one tomorrow

and after the ripening

on the sill that corners the morning sun

as we leave for the world

I will eat the one you tended yourself:

slice it open and lick the dark halves

that nourish its oval pit—I will

suck out these plump tongues of fruit

that speak for you.
