Flavor

Lay a naked slug on your neck
and watch it fizzle
like the putrid snail
I slaughtered at six
after licking red licorice

I’ve a taste for candy bars
followed by potato chips
lime after lemon

and the flavor of your nape
after the apple
has rotted away

    The tastes, smells, and sounds of this piece are visceral and alive, especially the second stanza.

    Thanks Tyrone. This poem is one of a collection/chapbook I’m working on, “The Sensuous Poems”…
