Can there be gloomy food in summer? How does this theory apply to poems?

I guess if the food is over-cooked.  Or the combination of rain & heat & cold is not in harmony.  And definitely if the poem is over-or-under edited.

    A sudden burst of rain hit the table
    and the merchant put on his hat
    The food, the lovely tomatoes,
    splattered with the nitrogen of rain

    But he did not make a move to leave the table
    enjoying in an odd way the uncertain weather
    when was the last time he had sat in the rain
    steam rising from the newly painted table
