Did I know you first as a colorful thing, or had I heard you tumbling down a staircase and did I turn to see you fall, and then I would never forget you and I wanted to be near you and I touched you, my hands closed around you and I held you, our two skins were touching, a child and a lemon in their natural relation; I would have smelled you then, and probably would have put my tongue on your skin, you would have seemed big, like a melon to me now, maybe I even saw you then, saw you and then stopped seeing you, and now, years later." (from the jacket). Bookseller Inventory # C92014
Synopsis: "Lemon" is the story of the passionate love between a man and a citrus fruit, told with a fluid mixture of prose, drama, and about twenty pages of rhymed couplets. Krauser's inimitable style is at once richly convoluted and light as air.
