winter produce...

the grocer imports

fruit flies

Modern Haiku 51.3


  1. Sharp and witty observation. I find myself also thinking of "produce" as a verb, as if an alternative first line could be "winter produces" and the ellipsis provides the suggestiveness and pause to let that first line stand a little apart, like the fruit being separate from, and close to, the fruit flies.
