Day 48, Kiwi is awesomeness.

Okay, so I did sight yesterday. Now I'm gonna do touch.

Kiwi or Scrubby Brush?

It does not feel like a hamster
so much as a balding plastic doll.
Rough and prickly but with the slightest
pressure you feel it's swollen goodness
bulging through the tough brown skin.
The heft of it is surprising, always feeling
twice as heavy as it looks. It's a kiss you weren't
expecting, one you say you didn't want
but liked. And you find yourself wondering
what to do, to put it down or indulge and
you look to see if anyone is watching.

Spongy, supple
smooth as silk
a porous fungal delight,
like organic styrofoam.
