Blueberry

The blueberry sits,
She’s happy with her life
She’s
Blue
Like her brothers and sisters were
Though she feels rather small
Compared to the plums
Though she feels rather spherical
Compared to the grapes
She knows she’s the juiciest fruit
She is
Blue
As the night sky
Painted by a child
She is
Blue
Like the eyes
Of a dreamer
She is
Blue
Like the uniform
The offspring hates to wear
She is
Blue
She is happy being blue
And one day she is plucked
From where she rested so long
She has prepared for this day
Since before she was born
Half of her is gone
She looks at herself
She is a muted green
Green
Like the sea the offspring
Loves to go and see
She is green like
Pear drops
She is green
She was always green
She was happy being blue
But inside
She knew she was green
