Kiwi Tree

Remember the tooth-marked kiwi fruit on top of the garden wall?

How it got there now seems clear. My neighbours have a tree, which, amazingly, is bearing fruit in January.


A River of Stones, Day Twenty-One: Teethmarks

From the window I can see something on top of the wall. It is small, barrel shaped and brown. It reminds me of a Kiwi fruit. In the garden, I peer up at it. It is a Kiwi fruit, incongruous on a garden wall in south London. I have my camera. I look at the fruit through the lens and see teeth marks. A fox has bitten into it and left it. Maybe the taste was too sharp for his sweet tooth.
