Sapodilla (Sapotille) ~ (Suriname)

Sapotilla

I remember

Hurrying home

One very early morning

Like a bat caught by sunrise

After indulging all night long

In the delicate sweetness

Of the sapodilla

How tasting forbidden fruits

Of awakening manhood

Brings about a change

In a boy’s life

Forcing him to leave home

As a man
