cheRRy

The way new yorkers
say cherry
or terrible
or how I imagine
they would say
merry christmas
if new yorkers said merry christmas.

It’s that slightly aggressive,
slurred double r in the middle:
cheRRy, teRRible, meRRy-fuck off-christmas.

Anyway, it’s one of the things
I like to hear on your tongue.
