Oh Kale, to thee I hale
My dark green leafy lover.
What was life before you,
Without the edible sunlight,
The chlorophyll mood-enhancer,
The magic blood detoxifier?
Gosh, I think you’re making Spinach jealous,
And Broccoli can just stop texting me now.
I love you so much, beloved Kale,
My boyfriend thinks we should get a room.
There’s room enough
for both you and him in my world, I think.
Call it what you will–a threesome,
An open relationship– I know he’ll learn to love you
Like I do.
Oh, by the way, Kale, have you met my girlfriend, Bacon*?
She’s hot, and sizzly, and I’d like to have her every day.
I think you’d be fabulous together,
And the four of us will thoroughly enjoy brunch in bed.
Let’s make a date.
I predict it will be great.
How about tonight,
and again for lunch?
I’m glad you’re game, Kale.
You have such great endurance.
A day without you is depressingly incomplete.
I hope this year we can go steady,
And maybe next year tie the knot.
I’m looking forward
to our delicious,
*Organic, local, pastured!
