to hold the moon on your hungry tongue


,
first hum her name in scooped vanilla phrase,
and let it murmur-melt to silence. drizzle her

in dark chocolate sauce sky, with poprock star
sprinkles. there’s a milky way shake nearby;

just grab a straw and slurp. the earth’s a
blueberry lime swirl lollipop, unsticked. mer

-cury’s a fireball, sure to cure your tongue.
there’s a universe to savor here. dig in.

    You sure know how to make me giggle. 🙂

    This is fan freakin’ tastic, and you know it, baby.

    These are my favorites:

    “drizzle her

    in dark chocolate sauce sky, with poprock star
    sprinkles”

    “just grab a straw and slurp. the earth’s a
    blueberry lime swirl lollipop” (plus the almost mermaid at the end of that line)

    And then the hidden Madame Curie, of course.
