ode to the tomato

I rode my bike to the farmer's market today in search of tomatoes. I bought a giant bag, and as I was headed out, I ran into two poets. My love for tomatoes runs deep (borderline obsession), so I figured that was worthy of a poem. Here is what it says:

Tomatoe (yes, he actually spelled it wrong. Love it.)

of wine
in blood
of shaded night.
sweet heat
filling the vessel with 
a taste of fruit

-WC (

I don't know many places where you can get a poem with your purchase of tomatoes, which is why I think Seattle might be the greatest city on Earth. Just sayin'
