Ode to a Schizophrenic Tomato

To be or not to be

Am I a fruit

Or a veggie?

Round and round the question

Rings inside me.

Oh, dreaded daylight!

When the warming sun

excites the questioning voices.

Or maybe it is the wind brushing through

My leaves?

I am never quite sure.

How I long for the night’s darkness

For it is cool

and quiet abides within.
