Sonnets from Suburbia: Coach Row 32
LADY P speaks her opinion loud and clear in “Coach Row 32”. Methinks I might agree with her at times especially about the sleeping clod. What say you, Tomatoes?
Coach Row 32
That woman won’t stop sneezing, oh my God.
She is allergic to her kids, I swear.
Why doesn’t she awake the sleeping clod
who is their dad, he snores without a care.
He’s managed to sit two whole rows ahead,
and not by accident, I’ll make a bet.
The snot, the poop, he’ll have a beer instead
of dealing with the diaper wearing set.
And me, I’m sitting right across the aisle,
annoyed as hell although this now reminds
me of my former tots, and so I smile
despite myself, as memory rewinds.
At my wits end I really want to shout
As itsy bitsies crawl the Goddamn spout.
The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
