Today's 7/7



Berry Bed

I went to buy you
     a bed of roses,
but the clerk convinced me
     of the greater resilience
     ripened berries bear, 
so here's your bed,
     a grand melange --
          blue, black, rasp, straw,
          huckle, elder, goose --
like you sunwarmed, plump and bursting
     sweet juices on the tongue.
          Let's make jam.
