Poetry from Terry Trowbridge

Jalapeno Quietly Gazed At

Plump jalapeno
intones shapely strawberry rumpus
green today but one day blush
percolating solar swelling
shock for the curious ovivorous
	dangles on aortic question hook
	stemmed at a bifolial end (between bilabial leaves)
		punctuational singleton frog-plop pepper slung over
		Basho’s garden as bosom equation derived into one dimension
