in a bunch
a fraction of the skin
of yellow bananas
turns speckling brown spots
ripening in haste,
multiplying in shades
darkening over the days in platter
as freckles on my cheeks
tiny as spiralling dots
(not as wild as sunflower seeds)
as crow's feet & wrinkles under my eyes
(growing webbed lines, creased by wind-)
burn under summer sun
(infinity plays in my mind)
