Suffering, Death and Resurrection all Seem Odd – as Weird as a Mango in Winter

By Fr. Frank Desiderio, C.S.P.

An old man from Haiti,
told me his greatest fear;
the humiliation
of being killed by a
hurricane-driven mango.
At the farmer’s market in Kauai
a really good one
will cost you as much
as a bottle of wine.
The best one, standing over a sink,
knife in hand,
gnawing the flesh of the
palm-sized seed
in March in Michigan.

Tropical fruit in the heartland
as improbable as the Resurrection.
