"Aroma"

There is longing arising in my throat

Like a song floating on a flat-bottomed boat

Curving along the canals of Vienna

 

Princess Xanat, reclines like white orchids

In her lover’s sweet embrace,

melting away in velvet darkness

 

To the reddish gold and caramel

Overtones of sunrise and sunset

Love lift our cups to be filled

 

We share in the dark vigor of coffee

Cherries pressed against lips

Somewhere in Asia, Africa, Arabia careful

 

Hands choose the espresso that marks

More than the barren lands

Where love buried her treasure

 

And bid it grow, climb like a vine

Towards the heavenly sky

Where mortals become fine

 

My tongue with pleasure

In rivulet steams

With molten gold, I become the bee

 

Mesmerized by the purple tones of

The jacaranda flower

Flowing inside her.

 

The basket weave of caramel

Is full of promise

my thirsting lips

 

open with desire.
