"What is Fruit, really?" by Cassie Kinney (Poem)

Fruit was hormone rich,
When the jungle was our niche.
Fruit became part of our design,
And we were naturally inclined,
To eat Fruit which changed our biochemistry,
And so we evolved symbiotically. 

What is fruit, really?

The reproductive body of a seed plant;
A Developmental environment;
The plant's sex organ;
Or a swollen ovary of carbon.
