Millions of Strawberries by Genevieve Taggard









Millions of Strawberries
Genevieve Taggard


Marcia and I went over the curve,
Eating our way down
Jewels of strawberries we didn't deserve,
Eating our way down.
Till our hands were sticky, and our lips painted,
And over us the hot day fainted,
And we saw snakes,
And got scratched,
And a lust overcame us for the red unmatched
Small buds of berries
Till we lay down-
And rolled in the berries like two little dogs,
Rolled 
In the late gold.
And gnats hummed,
And it was cold,
And home we went , home without a berry,
Painted red and brown,
Eating our way down.
