This is just to say we could not eat the plums–
they were so many
pyramided together in plastic,
hailing from casa de Costco
where everything is sold in bulk.

We could not eat the plums.
unripe as they were–
purple/black skins
yielding to (very) firm yellow
(oh! not sweet)

We enlisted children,
yea grandchildren–
the 5 of them, and
their parents
but the pyramid remained piled
for ripening another

Oh–you bought apricots, too?
But we still have these plums……..
