import evolution

my earliest jackfruit memories
are deliciously bright yellow
sugar syrup-soaked sticky
and pasteurized
with the slight metallic tang
of aluminum cans

but now that i have experienced
the pale to gold-yellow
floral-sweet crunch
of bulbs so fresh
that sap from the peel
makes my fingers stick
there is no going back
