Irreconcilable Smoothness

Grounds for Divorce.

By Lamar WigginsPublished 3 months ago Updated 3 months ago 1 min read

Dall-E

A tireless relation

runs the gamut-

all good things

must come to an end.

He,

the bold, rich,

creamified lover.

And she,

the sweet, sassy

globular counterpart,

have celebrated

marriage

for as long as

I know...

However,

this palate has

changed,

matured,

graduated.

Textures clash,

they disappoint...

I hereby

reject

the continuance

of this

solemn union.

Separation

is plausible,

separation

is obligatory.

*

I remain enamored by

the existence of

this simple legume,

disguised as a nut

but related to the bean.

It's transformed into

a heavenly spread that

slathers the bread

with finesse,

blanketing the

outer fringes of the

toasted crust.

-process complete-

I stare at the

basic

creation

and watch

the oils rise

to cover the

surface

with a healthy

sheen.

I lunge

for that

anticipated bite,

while

the ouster stares

in contempt

from a

distance,

completely devastated.

Alienated for other uses;

no longer necessary

for pairing...

A second bite

occurs,

shortening the

life span

of sadness

for the imminent

breakup.

I stand by my

righteous decision...

*

Pasty, proud,

and newly liberated,

the protein-fortified

spread

may never find

another soulmate

worthy of

its supreme quality

to stand alone.

With one bite left...

I internally

celebrate.

    I just ate a packet of Reese's while reading this 😁

    My mouth is water with the new craving for peanut butter!! Looks like I need a snack!!! Such vivid sensory imagery and details in this, I am in constant awe of your talent Lamar!! Great work!

  • PB&J forever! Great stuff, as always, Lamar! There is always great depth to your writing, and I find in a second reading, it often impacts me even more. Thank you for sharing your talents and heart with us.

    🤤 I’m all for peanut butter in bed with a spoon! 😆 Great poem Lamar!!

  • I'm a sucker for peanut butter. But just last year I tried it with jam and I kept cursing myself for not trying it sooner! I love PB & J so much! Like SO MUCH! But doesn't mean I don't like peanut butter on it's own. I still love it! Your poem has made me so hungry, lol!

  • E.K. Daniels3 months ago

    Haha the original Mr. and Mrs. - PB & J! Love the unique take on this challenge. I have the draft of a submission which also deals with PB, but in a more abstract way. We shall say if it makes a final draft. I like your take—original, and versatile on the metaphorical and literal palate!

  • No more jelly? How about banana slices & honey?

  • Mark Gagnon3 months ago

    Sorry, but I'm a fan of strawberry jam. Peanut butter isn't the same without some support. Even Reese's peanut butter cups would be lacking without the chocolate case. Funny story!

    UMMM! Not quite sure what is happening here. My mind is jumping al over the place. But. at least the subject seems satisfied. Hmmm!

    This started tragic, and I loved how you worded that, but turned quite funny, and I loved how you worded that too.
