two day-old avocado

even sliced wide open

seed removed

belly exposed to the world

you are still capable of change — 

see the bruised shroud of black

that has descended

upon your buttery flesh

wiry veins sprouting

like a network of murky khlongs

ripe skin darkening into dusk

softening still

all this a sign of decay

to be sure

but also

and importantly

growth
