when peanuts work right

held between my first and second
fingers and my first finger
and thumb of the other hand
i squeeze so hard that the shell cracks
sometimes but not always perfectly
along the line i eat them by two

Describes well one of the small pleasures of life.

Larry nuts lark

monkey nuts are fun
when they're brittle
but too often you have to
peel the skin off bit by bit
like stubborn wallpaper
that'll only come off in flakes

i love your poem
