Okra

fingers

that’ve

travelled

in me

through you

and back to me

 

Corn

your teeth

as I press

my tongue

into them

reaching

your gums

and then

sucking-in

 

Cacahuètes

écrasées

la sauce

sublime

coulant

jusqu’aux

orteils

 

Avocat

la chair tendre

se fondant

avec

le souffle

de ton vent

dans l’oreille

 

Tomates

mes lèvres

intérieures

glissantes

éclatantes

Imbibées

par des jus

aigres-doux

                                                                                               

 

And lettuce

leaves

of

cool

moistness

Shading

the

body-glow.

 

from breathing for breadth

(TSAR: 2005, pp. 47-48)
