"Stone Fruit" & "Promise" by Erin Rose Charlton

Updated: Aug 5, 2019

Stone fruit // pit me

This is how you do it,

A clean dismemberment.

Brush fingers over the fuzz--

Find a seam,

A weakness.

Apply pressure--

Not enough to pierce the skin.

Enough to tear the flesh in two.

Clean extraction

Of the pit.


A breath of air

Turned fragile with song.

Thin, twisting notes of skinny love.

A conglomeration of branches

Not far from the music

Awaiting the meaning.

They will not have to wait long.
