Me at 43

Riding my bike
in the Meadows
near my home,
on the floodplain
of the Connecticut river
on a summer afternoon,

"I guess
I haven't
squeezed all the juice
out of life yet!"

which poses the question, "and just what type of fruit do you envision?"

lemon or lime?
fresh picked strawberry?
juicy when squeezed?
soft like a cherry?
ripe and ready?
tough outer skin?
one fruit alone
or several mixed in?

life can be juicy
of that there's no doubt
the pressing question is which fruit you squeeze out
