We have a love/hate relationship with the mulberry tree next to the driveway.

We left one car
In the driveway
Under the mulberry tree,
Drove the other one
To Minnesota.
Home again
We consider
Mulberry jam.
Home again
We consider
Cutting down the tree.
Home again
We sit in air-conditioned comfort
Pretend the mulberries
Are not fermenting
On the car still parked
Under the mulberry tree.
