Jack the Ripper goes VegetarianbyMaria2394©
Today I bought a pineapple
which looks too much like a lady.
Her long neck diverges into a mass
of prickly hair and her dress, I imagine,
was purchased in some tawdry secondhand store.
And as I contemplated her, I imagined
the down stroke of the largest knife I own
carving her dress into a skirt as she bled
The sweetest yellow juice.
I say it was merely her fate
to lie so beautifully cored and sliced
upon my breakfast plate.
