Berry My Heart at Bended Knee

Fruitful or Fruitless

Picking green as vengeance
against a late life strawberry rash.

My backyard crop, a
political substitute for water sucking lawn,
off limits.

The alternative is to wash and bag
each ripe berry as a gift.

Fruitless, or fruitful,
each in my hand.

  1. I would like for my ears to hear what my eyes have just read, so that my heart could listen to the words you’ve said.
