1000 Grapefruit Spoons
June 18, 2013 §
I gave him 1000 grapefruit spoons,
so he would not run out,
so he could pick, switch— choose.
He looked at me with a ho-hum expression— spoke and said,
“All I wanted was a knife. Just one knife would do.”
I could give him 1000 grapefruit spoons,
but all he wanted
was one knife.
Who am I. . .
to try and change him?
