short poem seize the day
by Hugh Cook


Seize the Day

Let us celebrate
Ripeness.
Nectarines are not forever.
Conserving caution will not sustain
Bruised liquids until tomorrow.
So let us celebrate
The action of the teeth,
The kiss of capture,
The running juice
Of consummated claim and dissolution.
