Don't be polite.
Pick it up with your fingers and lick the juice that
may run down your chin.
It is ready and ripe now, whenever you are.
You do not need a knife or fork or spoon
or plate or napkin or tablecloth.
For there is no core
to throw away.

Welcome to my coffee table. Here you can find out what I like to read, what I'm reading now, what I listen to, and read what I've written myself. So pull up a big cozy chair, grab a fresh cup of coffee, make yourself comfy, and peruse whatever tickles your fancy.
