Guava Marmalade

Some color still at the bottom.
the small jar open
waiting for me to wash it.
My german side says:
"it is not finished yet"
This semi liquid stuff made from the fruit
that speaks of my roots
crimson origins
broken leaves minuscule pits
is there really no hope.

I watch the guayaba's sweetness
gather for my eyes
the design on the transparency
will we ever become soft enough
to mold to the shape
of our sorrows
