The dragonfruit boast

dragonfruit
Dragonfruit boasted
A magenta hue
A radish just lacking
A hint of blue

Points like daggers
Bend softly
A wimp of a blade
No surprise

Suggesting
A taste exotic
Its flesh an
Enticing white

What, seeds?
The flesh is specked
Soft to the spoon
Anticipation

Flesh to mouth
No taste
No texture
No smell

A final impression
Failed.
