long way to Belfast

I’ve not been eating for a few days now
and yes I feel perfectly fine

the bananas on the counter have
been ripening nicely
I’m just waiting patiently
until the peels are beautifully black

I stopped eating potatoes years ago
replaced by a voracious
appetite for bright red cherry tomatoes

we always said we’d meet up
somewhere in northern california
or portland oregon
maybe for a day and a few nights
before taking flight to Fiji

from there we could go anywhere
as long as we ended
exactly where we started
according to both our DNAs
