Let’s learn to make jam
Spend the day picking berries
Laughing at our blue stained hands

Let’s learn to make flour
Thresh our own wheat
Winnow seeds from the chaff

Let’s learn to make soap
Wear aprons and goggles
And boil our lavender lilac oils

Let’s choose a way
To frame our days 
As a series of complicated tasks

Let’s pretend we don’t care
What happens in the end

We’ll start with winking irony
All the while

Earnestly hoping
Our warm biscuits

Loaded with sweet jam
Are indelibly delicious

Lick our fingers and
Forget to wash our hands.
