YO, Vinny!

"You don't want your credibility banana to turn brown, but you do want to speak out about what you believe in."
Bradley Whitford

"You have to have a certain persona to be a star, you know, and I don't have that. I'm a banana."
Harvey Korman

"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest."

Clever Bananas, the portable fruit!

I've tried everything to keep them fresh

when all the time they were ready to go:

simply separate them

and they know that it is time to be portable,

they keep fresh and go along.

Such a companionable fruit!

The bunch of five

like a vegetal hand

reaching out

across the species barrier

as if to shake hands

(That's what they're called:

a "Hand of Bananas"

at least that's what I call them.)

Yo, Yellow!

Time to come along on a little


Apple bananas, growing in da yard,

sweet and custard-y

not store-bought and hard!

So here's to a noble curved companion

No! not THAT one!

the lowly banana

whose "tree" is really a giant grass.

Tomorrow's post:

"I've got a loverly bunch a coconuts!"

A L O H A!
