road an endless slender fruit between

banana banana banana banana banana

fields kilometer after kilometer between

banana banana banana banana banana

Costa Rica Panama Bri Bri territory

banana banana banana banana banana

when I say empty I mean not one

banana banana banana banana banana

weed singing bird or scurry of fur

banana banana banana banana banana

each bunch bagged in blue plastic

banana banana banana banana banana

dangling conveyer wire snaking

banana banana banana banana banana

skeletal hoop after hoop to the head

banana banana banana banana banana

packing shed heaps of green moons

banana banana banana banana banana

swallowed in boxes then enormous

banana banana banana banana banana

corrugated metal containers voyage

banana banana banana banana banana

disgorge on opposite shores unload

banana banana banana banana banana

reveal peal devour sweet soft ubiquity
