The Strawberry Seed


By Causanu RaulPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

There is a strawberry seed


between my molars

this bitter kernel of fructose tomorrows.

Sunward searing -

down my lashes,

salt leans back into my eyes


quarried ocean brine

refracted through turgid time;

my sunroof is spider-webbed by

summer’s musings

spindled ‘round


Strawberry seed:


between my left

molars, a strawberry seed

is stuck:


through fruit found on roadside dunes

strawberries might sprout

Between my teeth

- there -

is stuck

a strawberry’s seed
