Scuppernongs (Danny Barbare)

Eating scuppernongs, the bluish-
Black speckled skin sour and
Tough and the seeds bitter.
They are spit out and the
Sweet jelly of the fruit swallowed.
Scuppernongs are picked
Filling the paper bag, clusters
Beneath the leaves on vines and
Ripe as the twilights of
Early autumn sprinkled with stars.
