Curve of her lip since birth
round and wide
cherry jello puff and perfect.

Plums purple, gleaming
no, black —
from the tree heavy with the ripe of summer.

How the trees form
the capital letter D
off the dune as a frame over the misty lake.

Silkworm trails
there every morning
visible only in the mist.

Fermented carrots
slim and salt swimming
in a bath of pickle.
