Ruby Moon

—song to a lone vine survivor of an over-heated summer
which snuffed the hope of harvest in my niece’s garden
(thanks for the photo, Ariel)

Tomaton on a spoonsmall ruby jewel tomato
on my spoon
…………….… you & your reflection
like a bleeding maraschino
on a salad sundae magnify
a loneness

your passion for survival
your lust for life

like a ruddy eclipse discus
recollection
…………..…… returning
ruby moon
