Cherries for dinner

We eat cherries for dinner,
a pile of hair bobbles,
purple tongues,
polished sacks
of chin juice.
I give one to my son
and watch as he punctures
the skin,
face and hands soaked in it,
looking at me,
wondering
how grown-ups decide
which inks
to be angry at
and which ones to eat
with animal
delight.
