Taste This

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

raise a fork to your mouth,

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.
