A Blueberry‘s Daydream: Discovering Stardom and Societal Norms
A sibling of culinary poetics
they say i need good company —
no one picks a good berry from crooks
they say i need photogenicity —
no one rewards homely looks
they say i need prime tonicity —
no one likes a mushy past-their-prime
they say i need functionality—
no one markets useless grime (wait — don’t they?)
ahh…but they forget my core
crimson lining in luscious passion~flesh pure~
have you looked under my skin and in between?
for them — their skin and bones and in between
i am their catalyst — their benefactor —
i glisten from the top of the crystalline river
on a pedestal I stand humble — and TALL
till the next fav takes over. ouch!
seriously, have you looked inside a blueberry?
