wow i really love this. the free flowing verses and the premise itself- women and fruit, but no mention of the apple? hm. lol. the symbolism is wonderful.

The summary scared me, but this is a good poem, reflecting upon the imagery of peaches - you did well here.

I'm glad to see that you are still writing. I used to write often on this site under a different name... or like three names. AuthorWitch, TheKillerWallpaper, and sillyandmisunderstood. I've deleted all my old poems, changed my name and here I am again. :)
I'm looking forward to reading your work again.

What a wonderful concept. I enjoyed the comparisons in this good piece of poetry. Well done.

god I haven't been on fictionpress in so long
I can't believe I've missed all this
this is so amazing it just made me . I feel like I can't get your kind of poetry anywhere else, it's like a drug and it's just great. ok so I'm gushing. but this poem is flawless, all of it, the words, the images, all the fruits. I love the way your words sound, all sensual and dazzling but strong and powerful. it's just perfect, never change the way you write.

Huh. Sex and food. Sort of perverse, but at the same time playful and summery. Sensual, I guess. The flapper girl reference fits in well, along with the subtle biblical allusion to the tree of knowledge, with the theme of seduction. I like it a lot, though the line breaks could be hammered out a bit more.

women are like fruits, are they not? delicious. soft. ripe. beautiful. the symbolicism was gaw-jus. i love poetry that exults the female form. as all have said before me, wonderful job. your works keep me going.

[the flapper girls] I don't recognize this "flapper girl" reference.
[honey child / dipped in sizzling tomato grease.] I saw this line in your summary and absolutely loved it; outstanding imagery.
[prickly though not forbidden, / the fruit meant to be hidden] These lines gave me the image of pubic hair, for some reason.
[she is as round as a cantaloupe,] Another great line.
I want to like this piece more than I do- I certainly admire and respect it- but it's one of your more abstract and symbolic poems, and so it was hard for me to really get into it. I guess it's kinda like Technical Foul, which I believe is one of my strongest, most well-written stories, but you didn't really care for it, which didn't surprise me, since there was no personal connection to it; it's a very "scrotum-ish" story, as I like to call it.
This poem is very different from your usual. Often your poetry features an "I" voice and has a very personal feel to it, as if it was lifted straight from your diary. Your poetry often reads like a stream-of-conscienceness, as well; it seems to ramble while never losing track of what it's talking about. This poem seemed better constructed; it doesn't seem as effortless as your others. I could imagine you sitting and sweating over each line. The recurring fruit imagery is fantastic, and I imagine it was very difficult. So, like I said, when it comes to writing merit, this piece definitely gets what it deserves. It's extremely well constructed and well thought-out. I bow to it. I just don't want to hang out with it, though I know I could learn from it.
