The cool breeze blows on the raspberries that are red as an apple.
The raspberries that symbolize summer.
The raspberries that I pick with my bare hands every day.
Susie! You missed some on your row!
I ignore him.
Susie, come work over here!
I ignore him.
My name is not Susie.
Just because I am black,
It doesn’t mean whites can call me whatever they want.
I am Olivia Cherry.
