Poetic Personal Ads: Ripe For The Picking

sweet mounds of purple
summer aching to burst upon
tempted tongues willing to cozy up
to muffin batter in a 400 degree
oven or cram a piecrust jam jar
freezer bag tagged “home-grown berries”
pleasantly plump a little seedy looking
for nimble fingers not afraid to get stained or
pained by a few pricks if you’ve got the
digits we’ve got the delectables so reply
to “neglectables” aka the blackberry
bush in affluent alley but don’t
dilly dally because while the
rich go produce shopping
the ripe go rot rot
rotting away

    thank you so much
    that was delicious
    and a little ambitious
    your sweet mounds of purple
    a little auspicious
    remind me so thoughtfully
    i need to be, expeditious…
