contest

green, black, round,
fragrant, sweet —
unattached, ready to
roll.
between your fingers,
almost bursting —
thin skin, juicy,
small.
pick them up
one by one, lift —
firmly, not letting
go.
they will obey,
each one in its place —
collapse in agony,
bleed.
onto your tongue,
simple sugars, sap —
nutrients you
need.
displaced, torn
from their bunches —
shorn away and broken
grapes.
