Fruit Leather

Fruit Leather

Fruit Leather

orifices nibble

jaw nodes masticate

succulence expels

and froths it up

as ambrosic juices drench

complex mystification

conforming structurally

onto lips


lick, twist, braid and weave


around fruity moist

leather candy

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. uncle freddie ( all my ferret relatives are named uncle freddie, even my aunts ) cooked a meal which had the consistency of shoe leather.. now, i know this has nothing to do with your candy or fruited leather, although the idea struck me when i saw your subject matter… anyway, the housekeeper who wears a french maid’s outfit around uncle freddie’s house looked at me, and i looked at her, and in a moment our eyes met… there was no smile, no head nod, no. it was simply a meeting of the eyes, that a dilema had arisen here… were we to attempt to eat the shoe leather, or not? we couldn’t both come up with an excuse, that would be more lame than the football Giants simultaneously faking an injury… in a pure moment of genius, i tapped my mini GI Joe headset bluetooth, feigned an important call from overseas, stoop up, and quickly exited, wiggling out of my uncle freddie’s burrow to leave the hot housekeeper in the skimpy outfit to deal with the marinated hockey puck…

    sometimes, i admit, i take the easy way out….

    I tweet at @samuel_clemons
