Sukwa (Turai, Angled Luffa)


See that long sukwa

Hanging there so secretly

Between the greens

Like it doesn’t belong at all

In gramma’s garden

Dropped by birds maybe?

I remember one instance

How surprisingly well it tasted

With rice and curry

But then again

Most things taste good

With rice and curry

Is it waiting

For bad times to come?
