The Sun-God’s Strawberries

……………Take an omer of manna and keep it for the generations to come, so they can see the bread I gave you to eat in the desert when I brought you out of Egypt.
………………….. –Exodus 16

Two rows of berries with the right prep
may yield quarts of hearts while it
rains for days

Hunkered between them she picks
and, seeing many green babes
hanging from stems, bets
on many more quarts for 
many mañanas

Adelante the summer spreads and jets
blurlike to autumn through the day
while Pat picks Ra’s 
juice-red manna
