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
