Cherry Pit

In the moments before my husband proposed, I spit out a cherry pit

Beautifully oblivious to his intention

In the not too distant past, I ate

dark red cherries with raw-heart pits.

My mother and siblings and I

Had a spitting contest in the driveway.

We torqued our torsos, flung our heads,

Sent pits sailing over the hot cement

They must have made a dotted constellation, those gory cherry pits,

a connect-the-dots map

To a cherry orchard in Colorado,

A man with a cherry-pitted smile
