A new poem....
________________________________________


Be my mashed potatoes

and I will be your gravy

pepper this old salt

with your love.

I relish your eyes

curry my favor,

peel yourself to the skin

so I may mouth

your unblemished fruit,

let me run my fingers

through your angel hair pasta,

whisper nasty things to me dear

faster, yes... faster.
