Zuchini & Tomato

Zucchinis flower
growing so many green fruits —
tonight, lock your doors.

That first Tomato
perfumed with summer nights, so
deserves my kiss.

    Lock your doors indeed! Imagine how sad it is to be a woman without zucchini in her garden? I have to (gasp!) buy them in the store. It’s just too high here in Placerville. No tomatoes, either. But chard! and kale! and carrots!

    nice poem. made me laugh.
