    day 26

    I have always enjoyed the taste of the exotic ripe plums red strawberries the blood red flesh of the orange the sweet tang of fresh wine pressed between the feet of small women in wooden barrells my mother she warned me to be careful some food is dangerous she said some food takes you places you never come back from I listened as any good daughter should yet when he showed me his palm carrying that seed I could not refuse I have tasted death I have tasted life both are bitter both are sweet
