Green Death

Innocuous, leafy,
tendrils like young girls' curls
tease among the stems

Golden, silky,
Blooms like brass trumpets
announce a change to come

Verdant, greenery,
fruits like fingers stretching
hide beneath the leaves

Enormous, deadly,
enclosed like a bomb's bay
zucchinis in brown bags

The neighbors will never know
what hit them
when they open the payload
left silently in the dark
at their door
