The Farmers Market At 7 by Ricky Garni

Every day there is a new tomato.

This one was made by a girl early in the morning.
This one was made by Martha Washington.
This one was made by a purple Indian.
This one is as gold as the sun.

Farmers enjoy lying to city folk.
And getting up before the dawn.

Ricky Garni has worked over the years as a teacher, wine merchant, composer and graphic designer. He began writing poetry in 1978, and has produced over thirty volumes of prose and poetry since 1995.
