Take-Out Box

Form: Free Verse

You want a piece of me like I am some cake
naughty but nice
a candle lit treat on someone’s birthday
candles burning, wax dripping
or is too sweet jam slavered on my chest
more enticing
to your tongue seeking quick satisfaction
easy to digest
making you fat
you know I’m bad for you
the badly made gateaux in a take-out box
aerosol cream squirts of fluffy nothing
a brief taste is all
and it’s gone
just an empty box nothing to give
and you are still getting fat
did I taste good, baby?
