Dinner For Two

 

Through the window,

an enigmatic shine powders the night,

a golden invitation

.

How can peeping Tom resist

?

Olive delivers her riches

from harbour to pan, spreading herself, in heated waves

.

Teaspoon scoops thick, dusty love,

a skin-coloured storm and more,

cumin, coriander seed, turmeric,

ginger…

.

Onion performs a spicy show

then, crisp and firm, succumbs,

snuggles to the pan and melts in translucent pleasure

.

 

I de-seed the chili and lead it,

heart pumping

into the melee`.

 

Spirit flares,

raising hope in heart and house,

soaring on wings of wicked glow

!

Desiccation of cauliflower brain follows, yielding with ease

and fat pumpkin, plucked from under mother’s umbrella,

cubes of sun, a makeshift pyramid.

 

A sliding jamboree from chopping block to pot!

Eden is smiling!

What next?

 

Top shelf holds such to make the muscle butter,

Burgundy beckoning laughter,

wishing for breath

.

Curry tells a story now,

cells are belly dancing a sexy, hookah evening.

The king is eyeing folds and flesh,

salivating, preparing to devour

.

My reverant fingers caress garlic,

peeling in slight, gentleness

but then, in a balanced contradiction,

strong wrists step in and crush,

a pungent opera accosts my heart and brings me to my toes

.

Fresh herbs flutter,

secret green feathers to make this night fly

and chic peas pour like soft marbles

to explore the wild sea

.

Rice a constant soul,

absorbs pins of dark matter,

essence of clove,

oil and water, direct from the mouths of god

.

My hands slide cool,

the viridian phallus,

stripping to reveal full cucumber flesh bursting with life,

eager to slide into cream yoghurt treat

.

Now banana joins the orgy, so frivolous and sweet,

attracts my female gaze.

I remove the thick, moon skin

and it weakens to me,

an enchanted smile,

doused in coconut snow

.

Clarity invites a red kiss

and so it begins
