I chopped icicle radishes fresh from the garden,
thick as my thumb
And put them in a dish for lunch.
“No thanks” you said,
“Too hot?” I asked.
“No,” you said,
“I don’t like the concept -Too crunchy.”
And you cracked a carrot between your teeth.
“Crunchier than carrots?” I asked.
“They are orange,” you said.
“Radishes can be white, pink, purple, red,
yellow, green or black” I said.
“They can be tapering, globular or cylindrical.”
“That’s the problem,” you said.
