Happy birthday darling Peach





Peach by DH Lawrence

Would you like to throw a stone at me?
Here, take all that’s left of my peach.
 
Blood-red, deep;
Heaven knows how it came to pass.
Somebody’s pound of flesh rendered up.
 
Wrinkled with secrets
And hard with the intention to keep them.
 
Why, from silvery peach-bloom,
From that shallow-silvery wine-glass on a short stem
This rolling, dropping, heavy globule?
 
I am thinking, of course, of the peach before I ate it.
 
Why so velvety, why so voluptuous heavy?
Why hanging with such inordinate weight?
Why so indented?
 
Why the groove?
Why the lovely, bivalve roundnesses?
Why the ripple down the sphere?
Why the suggestion of incision?
 
Why was not my peach round and finished like a billiard
ball?
It would have been if man had made it.
Though I’ve eaten it now.
 
But it wasn’t round and finished like a billiard ball.
And because I say so, you would like to throw something
at me.
 
Here, you can have my peach stone.
