Day 7 Love Poem -- Inanimate Object


with a name like that 

you could be a dish in a fancy french restaurant or wine 
perhaps from spain, maybe an arabic prayer, that wise-guy uncle
from the bronx, granny's houseplant, a type of spice

you, my chunkster, in that little red dress 
and one white shoe, oh i cannot resist
you, my last gasp
