Gathering Blackberries

by Bill Witherup from his book Men at Work, 1989

I wish I could spend three days grieving:
Hiroshima/Nagasaki - fingers purple-stained,
Wrists raw from thorns. How easily
Ripe ones pull off - skin, testicles, nipples -
The largest nearly the size of a baby's eye.
Suddenly we go from blossom to berry to seed.
Dear Christ, Dear Buddha I offer
One blackberry for each thousand A-bomb deaths.
