among the wild

down I go

where the pumpkins skulk

and tomatoes

are growing wild

tomato and pumpkin

down amongst

the cantaloupes

unruled

rock melon

vietnames mint

rubs shoulders

with the dill

aubergine …

oh dear

oh dear

eggplants

in among

the clumping welsh

I could hide myself

concealed

welsh onions

but basil

beetroot

your season’s nearly done

I thank you

basil and beet

and old red cabbage …

I should have pulled you up

a while

or more

ago

red cabbage

down another level

there

a peach tree

not yet given up

the struggle

peach in pumpkin

autumn approaches
