I am a grape,

not a raisin quite yet. Patience,

watch my paper thin skin sweat. Pay attention please,

I don't want to become such a thing,  

shriveled up and withered away, lost to the weather, in regret, so

be my tongue therapist, 

know my veraison,

listen to my death. Let my flavor take away your breath.

 

Whine or wine,

bring me alive, it's only my blood,

  so moan and groan with such a spirit that my spirits'  become

all your hard work, survived; from your toil,  bringing me to fruition,

cared and loved for, with sunlight and moist kisses,

keeping me crisp,

with your intuition.

I know that I have a purpose, that I could become many things, 

with some love, guidance and forgiveness,

I rely on you tending to me. Here's the catch , I reciprocate, for

I am not alone, l grow with many others,

we are clustered, sweaty skinned lovers, drunk on giving love,

in love with making you drunk,

we are a tragedy, hoping to live through one anothers

celebration.

 

We are Princes and Princesses,

soon to become Kings and Queens,  once paupers and peasants, now

recommended to all your friends, guests and family,

by some knowledgeable sommelier.

Don't let me, or any of us, die, 

lest we fall down, alone,

 such delicate skin covered in sandy loam ,

feeding the next harvest, never knowing the

throne.

Put me in your hand.

Find me,

at the right time,

on my death bed,

so that I may give you a reason to want me, once more,

next season,

the vine my crown, my cycle of juices expound, bottled and corked, 

then removed, alive and breathing,

hierarchy promised,

my vintage completed,

my purpose uncheated,

unbound,

I give my love,

if only to soothe.

 

I used to be a grape.
