I’ve never grown pear tomatoes
but I hope I will do it again
there’s something jolly about them
though I’m not sure I quite comprehend.
Is it the belfry they bring to the garden
their curly jester hat
or is it they look like shmoos
or first cousin to squatty kumquat?
Or maybe the candle flame
they glowingly bring to mind?
Or happily all the above
