LANGUAGE
On my floral-patterned living room rug lays a bunch of actual grapes- purple midnight, broken by a matte, silvery dusk. Its always a good day when I find them at the farmers market, but my brilliant cat cant bear to leave their tiny quivering stems alone, and once she has spirited them from their rest on the kitchen counter, I might discover them anywhere. The vitality in simple things is so clear- once she has shown it to me.
In a time that would have been old to Odysseus, under impactful skies, hard hands made shadows on the earth, and raised grapes beyond their mortal life. Their toil and imagination made light pass through objects, as have the hands that followed through countless thousands of years. My cat would understand such magic, she dares me to try and do the same.
