“at the midpoint/of summer/the tomato/star of earth/recurrent/and fertile/star/displays

If you’re lucky, your first “star of the earth” this summer will be just seconds from the earth when you taste it, eaten whole, on the spot, in the hot July sun. A friend told me she once consumed so many tomatoes in this manner, juice streaming down her face, over the course of several weeks, she developed a rash but still continued to eat tomatoes in this way.
