planet pomegranate

 

fated fruit

we will burst you wide open
our falcons will tear your forbidden flesh

red commandments will spill forth
we’ll embroider your image on sacred robes

we’ll store secret meteorites on the shelves of paradise

we’ll force zeus down from his mountain     angered
by our juice-stained fingers

we will wear you like a serrated crown

count the seeds
