NaPoWriMo Day 6: 3 X 4 green haiku

Cucumber, cabbage, cauliflower:
beheaded, without voice
swirl around

shorn of leaves, travel in pieces
without choice
bounce from ground to ceramic plate

Greens of the sweetness
curled above my moist tongue
test their fate

soft, crumbled blades dream of living
for a second longer, drunk
desperately among my teeth stuck.
