At first, I was weirded out, 
To slice open this tomato
 (Which we left out on the counter because 
Our daughter says it’s wrong 
To put them in the fridge) 
And see what looked, at first glance, like worms. 
But then, upon realizing they were sprouts 
 (I’d never seen this before; have you?)
 It was like, ooh! Extra crunch! Extra nutrition! 
And so beautiful!
 I was torn between planting it and eating it, 
But eating won: it was delicious, 
And I like to think of all those sprouting seeds 
Sprouting inside me, like ideas, 
Like new growth, new opportunities for joy…
