13 – 4 Looks to Thyself

1 November 2017

Thirteen pomegranates
hanging
On such a small shrub

Redding over summer
turning
Crimson in the fall

Rubies ripe for eating
juicing
Dressing up our meals

Undressing at night
performing
The superfood of sex

Beneficial to the body
allaying
Declining mental health

The ancients named it
dementia
Signs of brain cell loss

Like forgetting to pick
fruit
After unseasonal rain

4 round skulls splitting
spilling
Brains going to ground

Shades of Persephone
sowing
Turning back on Hades
