Breakfast Mustache In Kenya

04 May
the home in kakamega kenya
yard full of fruitful trees
mango banana avacado (yum in smoothies too)
passion fruit guava
just out the back door
we picked daily breakfast
or afternoon africa-heat siesta drink
the papaya can leak puss gangrenous
but the strawberry flesh is honey sweet
to make the gelatine full of
the yellow ripe bananas with black spots
the green bitters can not do
purple parrot mangoes with dark bruises
zipped into ambrosiac muddles measured
bringing out the gusto
put in a splash of lemon or lime
to the whirlpool cornucopia:
and a symphony blends,
the orchestrated
explosion of
a sun-drenched
