Poet's Corner: Lockdown fruit and veg

'I washed every apple, every tomato, every single thing and laid them on a tea-towel to dry, looking at them as colourful treasures of the earth.'

Lockdown fruit and veg

When I received
my first organic
fruit and veg box
after a month
of making do
on tins and dried goods,
I washed every
apple, every tomato,
every single thing
and laid them
on a tea-towel
to dry, looking
at them as
colourful treasures
of the earth.

It was the end
of supermarkets
for me, not
deemed vulnerable enough
for a delivery any more
according to their
surveillance.
Goodbye supermarkets,
I never liked you
very much anyway.
I’ll make
my own way
now.
