Badly written ode

rode home tonight
sweat dripping from my brow
walked inside the house
then it happened
i felt it from the kitchen.
beckoning.
and raced outside and out of the corner of my eye
i saw it
in a mass of seven foot vines tangled around posts
was one
small
yellow
spot.
and it was like church
i could hear the choir.

my first tomato of the season.
about damn time.

so happy the pic is out of focus.
so tasty i don’t care.

bring on the end of summer, baby
