Ode to The Tomato

I long to pluck you from the vine

to take you as you are simple, fresh, whole,

into my mouth.

To taste you so, your naked simplicity.

Perhaps later I will dress you simply with olive oil,

and coarse sea salt,

Later still, perhaps, I will coax from you the secrets you are loathe to share

with a little red wine.
