Verrine d’Amour

“Cherry Mascarpone Verrine” – Makati, 15 March 2015

feeling fragile;

i partake of

sweetness

melting

sensually

upon my

tongue,

flavour of

summer:

bracing, tart

against

unctuous luxury

slipping, sliding

down my

throat.

 

i close my

eyes

and think

of cherries

ripening in

june heat;

of bittersweetness

mirroring life

good and evil;

of innocence lost;

of identity found;

of yearning;

of longing;

of love

unrequited;

of lusts

unslaked.

 

feeling fragile,

i partake of

rapturous decadence –

but the

aftertaste

is harsh

is brutal

is acrid

is loneliness

made

all too

real

as i eat

as i think

as i long

for you.
