Pomegranate Warfare -- poetry by Nora Glass

The war I wage is sweet and red.

Warriors appear in fruit baskets, on counters,

In paper totes, ripe.

I wield a knife,

A cutting board for a shield,

A compost bowl

For the casualties.

They are flavor:

Packed in trenches,

Bags of blooming blood

Serving a ruby crown.

And I, hungry for violence,

Peel the skin

Tear it open

Hold the heart in stained victorious hands.
