Ode to a Tomato
Phyllis Beckman


O, blushing orb
of summer sun,
sliced thick,
balanced on bacon,
with dark wheat toast
fresh green romaine,
is that a BLT
you're making?
pass the mayo,

Oh, blushing orb of summer sun. I say this poem?s quite well done. Who says a poem can?t be fancy free has never had a BLT. Randy
