Intentions Noble 2012

Intentions Noble

(Adventures in Sweden through the heart of a Brooklynite)


Oh, my intentions were noble:

To pick the blueberries

Bursting like cherries

In forests nearby.

The plan to enhance and to nourish

Eyes cherished by vitamins: berries the promise.

Hours of handfuls and not one collected;

Mouthfuls not potfuls and not unrepentant.


If weather obliges –

The morrow is dry,

What hasn’t transpired in ages and ages –

Berries like cherries in forests nearby

Will not go unstockpiled

But undergo pie after pie after pie.
