you didn't know why i was laughing

i carried my red basket and bought the blueberries

the blueberries are stacked neatly in my red basket

we washed the blueberries and put them in two bowls

two pints of blueberries

we hid under a big blanket from everybody we are hidden

we squished our blueberries and ate them with spinach leaves like spoons

'i want to rub my face in my blueberries'

'so do it'


i rubbed my face in my blueberries

i batted my eyelashes against your cheek and left blue streaks on your cheek

i thought about all the times i've almost been hit by a car for listening to loud music while walking and laughed.
