Poem #1 About This Week

The Food Venn of You and Me

On your side would be fried okra
IPA's and iced espresso
Inhabiting my circle would be
Strawberries and lemon
And medium roast drip-brew
I think the crossover space
Would take up the most room, though
Filled like it is with tequila and shrimp,
Coconut and bacon
Guacamole with blue corn chips
Oatmeal, peanut butter, blue cheese
And spicy jerk chicken wings
More than enough in common
To share a midnight snack
From the same plate
But enough different
To never be bored
Enough tolerant to savor a kiss
From lips that allow passage
Of seemingly intolerable things
