We Made Vinegar with Our Grapes

we made vinegar with our grapes,
bitter and briny,
knotted our fates
tangled and viney.
but vinegar has uses too,
we can make the best of this,
they were never bad grapes,
just not as sweet as those chosen for wine.
the path we chose
was perhaps better, at least, than rotting on the vine.
