Avocado Etc.

Hard wooden heart.

A soft, fat, pear shaped body:

easy to mash and mold.

Best when crushed and mixed with acid.

Groping hands squeeze you endlessly:

hardness is frowned upon.

Too soft and it’s goodbye as well.

Loved at the party, but

dark and miserable in the morning.

Leaves hard-to-remove stains.

All dark spots are to be cut away.
