If Music be the Food of Love, Play On...

An Inverse Poem

I want to devour you whole.

You are simply stunning!

Your delicate sugar snaps in the air.

Ohhhh, I melt.

A Tango with tang!

A lift. A flick. Crisp!


Sweet and light.

Shiny with bite.

Decadence incarnate...

Smooth and sumptuous.

Your pale, golden flesh..

In a lemon yellow dress.

Such sugar-coated highs.


Should be illegal.



I inhale you and linger in each breath.

Tongue hanging out.

Rhythms stirring, your delicate Sorrento fragrance drifting through the mix.


Each flourish...

Moreish. AMORE!!

A hungry dance of lust.

You... Me...

Our own recipe.

All the juicy ingredients within.

Folding, entwining, taste-filled twists.

Sleeves rolled up, fluidity in the wrists.

Dusting the boards with the lightest touch.

Gentle. Oh, so gentle.


A lift, and a spin.


On the cake.
