Extra Crispy Moist Ideas


     TalkOverTapas

Mind of his
filled with STOP signs
laundry tickets
voice mail passwords
the click-click-click
of the bike messenger
gliding by

She minds the fat grams
in a Nutty Buddy, mind-full
and loaded with the sound
that makes her shift from
2nd to 3rd and the coolwomb
comfort of air conditioning
under flannel sheets.

Moist ideas lubricate
the distance between them
contemplation of conflagration
charred and crispy is the
common ground they neglect
to mention in between bites.

Confutatis maledictis
Flammis acribus addictis,
Voca me cum benedictis.

Oh you vex me Laura Lee. I see that your quote translates to:
"When the damned are being confounded and when they are being consigned to the sharp flames, call me among the blessed."

What do you mean lovely Laura Lee? Have you consigned me to flames? I'm probably going there anyway but ...

Owl Meat Going-to-hell,

It's not for me to consign anyone but you're the one who brought up conflagration, charred and crispy.

Happy Holidays!
