Original artwork by the author. Available here.

it wasn’t because i was high.
it was the impossibly sweet smell,
the plumpness of the moment.
the way my tongue found the glorious ridges,
the nooks and crannies of it.
it was the best date i had ever eaten in all my life.
i would have shared.
if only you asked.
