What I like about tomatoes

is how they manage to turn

green and yellow into red

and not just red but juicy red

how hot from the garden

plump and full o' the sun

how they slice and flop over

succulent pulp and watery seed-sacks

how oh how easy they do go

down nightshade or no and how

and how they slip us the seeds

in silence and in plenty

seeds for yet another summer.
