Mr. Comey

He watches the garden through his window
Thanking the neighbor girl for spotted dough
Now is a time for reflection
To understand the flow of time
To assimilate the mind with a broader human nature

He was calm in the moment
Toying with the overdone circle
Quietly devouring chocolate
Careful not to make a scene

The garden swayed obediently
Amusing the former director
The tomatoes were hyper-vigiliant
They even quivered between their metal holders
Wondering when fatigue would set in

“They will make fine ingredients some day”
Comey thought
“They have to develop just a little bit more”
” So that they might be fat and prosperous”

At that, he smiled
Thinking about prosperous tomatoes
Reclaiming the Earth
