I chew Anise

I think my favorite place is the grocery store, more specifically the produce section. 
I walk slowly through and look at each  item for sale. 
I wonder at the strange roots and plants that I cannot even imagine how to use.
I touch all the apples, and try to dig my nails into the husk of the coconuts. 
I rip off pieces of sweet anise fronds and chew on them while perusing. 
Today I saw individually wrapped slices of tofu cheese, taro root, and cactus leaves; they made me smile. 
I chewed on my sweet anise and left that banal sector of happiness.
