Fruit

Funny-
yet in an odd
sort of way,
how men
liken women and cars
to fruit-
of all things.
And we've all heard
the expressions
" She's a peach,"
and-
" It's in cherry condition."
Though there's a tendency
to forget
that the " cherry" will
eventually
turn into a " lemon"
and the " peach"
into an " old prune."
Of course,
there's a convenient
solution
for when that happens-
a trade- in
for a newer model.
As for me,
far from peach-
not quite old prune,
I am somewhere in-between
one and the other.
