flies bringing in tomato shards

Standard


flies bringing in tomato shards.

  the vegetables they carry come with them from
eastern winds
and here they – the flies – see our town

and drop the shards, dripping fresh
freshly vine dew that
once made its way up
vine plant capillaries during
spring, and during the summer’s rain shines.

but they are flies afterall
and they are shards afterall

and now there are no more events for us
we stay inside.
my air doesn’t circulate until I
    just open a window a little
    and some air comes in
and my neighbors will then knock, they want
to visit and smell some air

honestly, though, the flies are seldom
and besides: how bad can a shard of tomato be
