roast

frida_kahlo_1

armed
with dental
hygienist tools
mind carefully pries
loose fallen
aborted, bruised
hidden in interstices

~
close
scrutiny provides
assurances
these thoughts
are still relevant
well within “dated”
expirations
~
kid gloved
palms gently
skewer
retrieved
prepping for sear
over fired coals
heaped
~
flames
flare flamenco
taps as emotions
pop crackle
roasting to near
perfection for dared
daring
~
end
result
yields
rare,
medium rare
well done
burnt
~
leap of faith
has me diving
headlong
in cyber space
with firmly pinned
roasted bytes
of heart’s flesh
~
primed
pen
paper
in hand
am ready
for
orders
~
Painting is by Frida Kahlo
