Plump little cherubs eating ripe cherry tomatoes

Tom says "I am not just a slice of pizza, I am the whole pie."
And this is the way words are eaten
when everything is new under the sun.
And this is the way the earth manifests
unless there is
an imperfect reflection in the eye of the beholder
holding love hostage for another day.
And this is the way we set ourselves free to face a new dawn
that opens the gates of heaven and lifts the corners of a smile.

"Take another slice of life" speaks the hungry heart. With every bite
Paradise is lost and found. The sun never sets, it is the earth that
turns 'round and 'round.

Editing stage: 


very good read here. it almost reads as a bit of taoism or a buddhist lesson.
one thing- who's Tom?
