Red Plate Special

artwork by Joseph Lorusso

Sometimes, in a cafe,
 he gets hungry for 
the red plate special.
Don't make him blue. 

Kiss him silly, till he
can't even smell
the food
for want of you.

∞§∞

If the blue plate special is the usual fare, 
this feast of passion must be the red plate version!

;)

Happy Valentine's Day.

Whimsically tender, or tenderly whimsical. :-)

kaykuala said...

Yes, That's right! Mesmerize him with her charms and things will fall into place. It's basic but it's also elusive though! Nicely Sue!

:D I feel like a broken record for praising your poetry, but it is all honest and heart felt. You have such a gift, and I am so in love with the way you write.

Had to Google red plate special to understand - now I do.

Love the idea he can't even smell the food for want of you (or me!).

Anna :o]
