Just Saying

Just Saying
(with apologies to William Carlos Williams)

They were blackberries from Mexico.
They weren’t organic.
There is snow on the ground.
I bought them anyway.
I ate the last ones in the fridge.

Maybe you would have liked them
in a bowl of ice cream tonight.

Forgive me.
They reminded me of northwest summers,
a Chinook wind for my palate.
They were delicious
and sweet
and so cold.
