Thought I had them all,
Ladder to the top,
Hundreds of grapefruit pulled in early winter.
Painful, itchy work.
But in mid spring I found two more:
One hidden fat round high in green leaves among tiny new fruit,
The other fat round in thick weeds below.
I knocked the high one off with a broom.
It fell heavily to the ground;
I picked it up.
I lifted the other from the weeds.
The two, still good?
Yes, juicy, very juicy ,,,,
