Enchantment

I saw you

watching me as I surveyed the red tomatoes

at the market stall

Are you just as fresh?

Can I add you to the hearty stew that is my life?

Or, do you wish to provide the unforgiving heartburn

that stems from an acidic rendezvous?

Pluck me from this table and carry me carefully in your reusable

to the journey within your soul

Like these ripen tomatoes

I might be healthy for your heart, too. – ©2014, Latanya Ivey
