WORDS SHAVED BALD

And instead of grapes, he’d peel words

capacious, voluptuous and velvet, feeding them

to her by hand, plopping them

one at a time into

her eager, open and awaiting mind that never

grew weary of learning the definitions of words

she already knew the meaning of

only previously housed in the familiar &

rudimentary lexemes

that had not been shaved bald just for her

 

(she had tasted that word from his fingertips as well)
