BLIGHT

BLIGHT

By Sylvester H Wauye

I wonder how
a tomato feels
when it’s is attacked by blight.

Especially,
a ripe tomato
shaped in the form
of a heart.

It looks infested
with dark, splotchy,
concentric spots
as it curls and withers.

The blight
is difficult to heal
when insane jealousy takes command
and smothers the light.
