each to each

Peaches — Six in a tin bowl, Sarajevo

If peaches had arms
surely they would hold one another
in their peach sleep

And if peaches had feet
it is sure they would
nudge one another
with their soft peachy feet

And if peaches could
they would sleep
with their dimpled head
on the other’s
each to each

Like you and me

And sleep and sleep

-Sandra Cisneros, from My Wicked Wicked Ways
