  • Blackberry, blackberry come
    purchase your sweetness from the sun,
    pleasures flicker on blackened bones,
    thorns rend secrets sworn.
    Tongues cut from frothing mouths joined
    as purple ink slices the page.

    My stone head drops and
    rolls across the floor,
    a history crumbles under each turn,
    memory stiffens as eyesight fails.
    Do not forget to entomb your sweetness
    for me,
    growing wild in the brambles you.
    my blackberry, come.
