on its way
climbed their ruin
fruit is secondary
over the lawn
“Sometimes from this hillside just after sunset
The rim of the sky takes on a tinge
Of the palest green, like the flesh of a cucumber
When you peel it carefully.”
Robert Hass, from Poem with a Cucumber in it, Time and Materials, 2007.
And because I’m thinking green as I’m munching cucumbers, here’s Brian Eno with his album Another Green World from 1975 (yes, really). He probably had an ambitious cucumber vine too.
