Mr. Tomato

Mr. Tomato, my daughter calls you.
Cute as can be, I laugh it off.
But after giving it further thought
she has an idea that might be true:
when squeezed too tightly
your insides start to fall apart.
But I’ll take it,
maybe even with a slice of toast.
Licking my fingertips,
I want to savor every last drop.
