Mulberry Picking This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Shake fruitful trees into blue tarps and
Listen to sweetberries
Thump like a thousand wood nymphs
Beating tiny drums.
Squishingunder warm tan feet, the berries
Stain the soles of tough summer skinand
Mark the hands of pilfering crew who
Pour dark rivers from sheets ofplastic, the
Cadence changes rhythm and speed growing
Faster and louder,until all
Falls
Silent.
