The Fifty Cent Tour

food for thought

I want to eat your words
roasted and dipped
in a balsamic
vinaigrette
then lavishly
tumbled
in sesame seed
crumbles
I want to eat your words

I want to smoke your dreams
rolled up and lit
in a big fat
cigarette
I would deeply
inhale
every pretty little
herbal detail
I want to smoke your dreams

I want to drink your intentions
straight with no chaser
in a
blue collar bar
I'd pave over well
that ribbon of highway to hell
I want to drink your intentions

I want to have you for dinner
with some sugar snap peas
and a nice Chardonnay
I'd lick clean my dish
even have seconds
if I wished
lookout
I'm gonna have you for dinner

  1. Now that really makes me think about the phrase, 'having company for dinner!' I like your use of repetition and the progression of stanzas.

  12. Quite a clever presentation, turning well-known aphorisms into provocative refrains.
