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
in blurs to autumn days
while Pat picks and tastes
Ra’s juice-red manna
