making pies

flour and shortening
a dash of salt
just enough water
so it takes shape

soft and firm like flesh
rolled flat
thin and pliable
smooth to the touch

make a bed of it
fill it with berries
and sugar
lemon juice and blue sky

and top it
with a lattice
arm over arm
leg over leg over leg over leg

this is how
i dream us
golden brown
cooling by an open window
