E. R. Sanchez

From a desk in Los Angeles, California, he hopes to create the experience of looking at a painting, a sculpture, an image, or a scene through words. Sanchez has been published online and in print.

Don’t Grow Tomatoes
Do not grow tomatoes
Leave off manmade
Find a suitable spot in your yard
Help your fledglings as you would your own children,
Pay daily homage to their welfare.
You will know they’re ready
You think you know what a tomato should
Select a ripe one.
And no, it’s not a vegetable,
Serve with everything.
