Cucumber, Cool!

Cool Cucumber
preferred vegetable
of the summer day

Cool Cucumber
too cool for school
you're well on your way

Cool Cucumber
listlessly turgid
in blazing hot sun
may all your dreams
be wet ones
in the summer sun

Cool Cucumber
you're
number one

Cool Cucumber
why are you so cool?
should you not be in school?

Cool Cucumber
winking and nodding prodding
don't you have a date?

Cool Cucumber
maybe I'm a wanna be
cool cucumber too

Cool Cucumber
like you
someday
someway
somehow
maybe
you
will come
back
my way
until then
forget it!
I've found
carrot top
will do

Cool Cucumber
we dated
quite exclusively

You brought the salad
I dished the mayonaisse
we dined so elaborately
on dandelion wine
you got a little fresh
and now you are squished squash

sorry I had to devour you
it was so predestined
to be
the thing
that matters
to you
was so
obilvious
to me

before again
I search for fork and knife
get thee to a corn field, get!

Cool Cucumber
grows so profoundly
proficient in agriculture
the soil knew what to do
you grew and grew
and
grew
and now dear cucumber
let's eat
you

patient and kind
grow
in your tall garden grass
time to weed
the cucumber from the chaft

doesnt the lovely cucumber
have an awfully
nice package
wrapped up like a vegetable
salad
do you want that
cool or warm

earthly delights
have some fun
in life's briar patch
seeded
sodded
and wholly
overgrown
cucumbers
remind me of you
wait til I get home

you
nodded
and
prodded
so much
I almost
bought it

thanks for
the time
remember that line
when you can't find a date
a cucumber will do
whoa, that is so rude
don't be a prude
you know what I mean

to take in these
cool watery places
fresh smells
seed well sprouted
higher than
an elephant's eye
cucumbers make me anything
in the summer's heat, hot
cool cuvumber
keep me cool
as the rain after the storm
quaking rivers run
and overflow their banks


earthy and new
bringing back
renewed energies
to you
cucumber cool

today
lay out the hay
in the patch
down the way
look up at the universe
and smile
you're on top
of the cucmuber
today

like new shoes
cool cucumbers
are sensible
yet
silly

enticing and yet
thriving
to be larger
and a looming presence
as ever
yet
is really meant to be
a lunch for
Our flat stomachs
Digest well
Cucumbers
forever Cool
as cool as can be
