In the Church Office After the Sermon - Nichole Brazelton

A bowl of cherries

on the window sill

looks like summer.

Your hand

on the table

looks like craving.

Hard edge

soft red

something sweet

and seeded.

How does it feel

against your tongue?

This is the kind of forbidden

we never mention.
