Eyes stinging,dark sky 
summer wearing a smoke mask
collecting tomatoes
thunder rolling
the sun is melting
neon grafitti orange 
on the sky
an ember that jumped out of the forest
landing on the sky blanket
too warm layer of wooly smoke
billowing from all directions


The thunder jumps me
as I am crouching
elbow deep
in that green tomato smell
I pray please oh please
the lightening
before the sky itself catches fire.


The tomatoes softly drop in the bowl
and the sky opened so gently there
that feel like diamonds
soft diamonds, 
melted snowflakes
little kisses on my sore eyelids
