i imagine you as a morsel
while i place you inside my needy mouth
tasting you before I submerge you…
tasting you before i hand your delicate scallop like flesh
over to my violent tongue
as it swirls you around and around
like a merry-go-round in the front of my mouth
thrashing you so wildly
that your skin starts to tear and flake off,
falling upon my curious gums,
like autumn debris
brushing against my velvet cheeks.
my molars grind you into a flattened flesh
diluting you with saliva
so that you can slide easily down
the dark pit of hell where you truly belong
