We’re just this far from the forest,
when a good woman gauged love
by her share of the hunt.
The primal act of having another
brings your body to a blush.
Grilled pork, a civilized return
to our roots, opens three worlds:
the tribal, the urbane, the eternal.
Life feeds on life. Artistry matters.
Something as unexpected as reddening skin
gives a glimpse into the ocean of your eyes.
Inside, a fire
on an undiscovered island says
this is home, taste this—feast.
