I Loved a Woman With Many Lovers

Prose poem on ways of loving

I loved a woman with many lovers
Candidates selected after thorough testing
Gently squeezed and prodded
For taste, texture, and emotional compatibility
Like so many avocados at the organic artisanal market
She loves them all a little
The lovers, not the avocados
