tomato girl

tomato girl

she sat & ate her little red tomatoes
her tongue give its a taste
so delicious

like maybe sour of words
overflowing the rhythm

indeed she was called
tomato girl
cos she loves her some tomatoes

with nothing plain
to her its like poetry in her mouth

when she chews up
a few sweet sentences
capturing a silent sound

between her teeth
wandering off each breath
oh she kind of hums

& say "i love it"

I don't like tomatoes but I like thi one! Very Zen Buddist like. Becoming one with whatever you're doing. Escapes me most of the time.:)
