Je suis a toi

image

Sometimes all I can think
about is chocolate cake.
Sugar seeping into my
parietal lobe.

I run my fingers through
your hair, stroke your
teeth with my tongue.

We move like batter
Clinging to each other
Stumbling around the
kitchen.
Desire in an embrace

You flutter to my
fingers, and I beg
you to give away
the recipe.

Some people butter
to charm and hazel
eyes and measure
their lives in spilled
flour on the floor.

Going under in a
flood of batter.
Gluttony in a silk
gown.

They dream in dark
decadence and open
their mouth and hearts
to confectionary splendor.

Happy to get lost in
frosting, strong arms
hard kisses, and oven
baked seduction.

  1. I just love reading your poetry. I particularly love the layered quality to this one (sorry I had to jump into the fun of baking with words). Just brilliant.

    I always look forward to your posts. Have a great holiday! πŸ™‚
