A picture of patience
two long-suffering friends
perched upon a pseudo-branch or might it be a stem?
A rash of brownish age spots
proliferate their skin
the green of youth has vanished with their next of kin.
What is to become of them?
What will be their fate?
Crown a bowl of cereal before they’re out-of-date?
They hope to draw the eye
of a casual passerby
if left to age another day they’ll be banana pie.
