An Appetite

April 30, 2017


Bacon and naked women 

peak my attention.

Drawing me early 

from my bed or

keeping me awake long 

past my bedtime.


Arousing my hunger 

even when I'm full,

whetting my senses.


I breathe their aroma

my lips soften, 

my pupils dilate.

I dive in burning 

my fingers and lips,

salty sweet addiction.
