Fuchsia ‘Pink Marshmallow’
In the year of Fuchsia
Jelly belly, M&M’s, Tic Tac Fuchsia flavoured.
Have you ever seen a Fuchsia fruit?
It is an iridescent brown bean. It is a stretched pearl attached to a long and sticky stalk, a ripe jewel that will be eaten by the hungry scattering birds. They, the scatterers, spread Fuchsia seeds through excrement like they were memories. They must be acid to be fertile. Their membrane becomes sour and thin.
Well, I’m talking about excrements, but this is the way to seed beauty: defecating.
Why don’t you taste the fruit as well?
It doesn’t taste much but at least you contribute to fertilise.
