go gather berries


Yellow Toms


go
gather yellow berries
from the wild tomato bush
that has sprawled
all along the fence-line there

bring nibble bites
of juice to me
small bites of jus
to trickle down my throat
dribble from my mouth

tiny golden cherries
little lycopersicums
as tart
as sour candy is
sweet
as thickened sauce

go
gather me those berries
those
yellow draperies
a-sprawl garden fence

wild
golden baubles

tomato mine
