I guess you’ll be in an art lesson one day

Someone shared an image
their daughter had painted online.
It was a dish of chopped lemons
and a silver grater. The background
was herb green and the shadows
and light landed in the right places.
I cried. It’s difficult to imagine
you creating fruit when
there’s so much to work out here.
