Castanea











spiny burr
clustered on the branch
tufted husk of pale armor
guarding the cream inner upholstered flesh
smooth softness
grooves adhered tight to pellicle
gentle pressure popping free
one, two, three
sweet fruits to hold
of
umber rich revealed
seed to ripeness
outside to in
spine to furrow
hard to smooth
captive youth
