The toppling of the tomato

I suppose I should have pruned it. But I didn't. And so the rain a few nights ago was a catalyst for the toppling. The day laborer set the frame back in the ground and added a big wooden stake to right it, but today it was halfway fallen over again. Maybe I'll start pruning it. Maybe I won't. Not sure why I like it's massiveness so much, but I get defensive when people suggest cutting it. Kinda figured this year's yard would be organic, meaning chaotic and laissez-faire. I haven't trimmed anything yet. After the me planting the seeds part, it's going wild and doing its own thing. And I kinda like that.
