    Eating Chocolate


    For all of you on your diet

    Innovative, succulent invention

    An invitation to chocolate without calories

    Chocolate without chocolate


    Playback the crisp membrane breaking

    Of the foil wrap, teasing it out slowly

    Unwinding, to an olfactory burst

    Of that sugared, roasted aromatic hit


    Wind off treed hills in your mouth

    Cocoa, sweet, nuts and dust

    Vanilla and smooth pariffin

    Softened up with special butter


    Designed to slow melt 

    As it hits ninety three degrees

    Mixing with your tongue drool juicy

    Liquifying, dissolving, cloying surface tension


    Overtones of coffee grounds

    And toasted nuts, ground to micro-smooth,

    Unless of course, there are pieces

    Made to crunch and chisel-split apart


    Let solids simply slide into confection gravy

    Sweet washing seeping backward

    Past coated passive teeth and gums

    Exciting all their sensing bits 


    In a drowning dark brown ectasy

    Discover that they cannot breath

    Nor would they even want to

    Until the last orgastic burst slowly fades away.


    Breathe out now, newly made triumphant

    Try sighing deeply all relaxed; some like an icey chaser

    Tongue caressing the mobbed enamel clean

    Washing memories deep into the cerebral cortex.

    ah the dark semi-sweet chocolate is my preference. An almond or cherry filler is decadent too. I must have some after reading this tasty morsel. ginga



    Everyone seems to think this is meant to be a conditioned stimulus, but I was going for the subsitutionary value of the thoght. When wishing equals having, and beggars who are poets ride their nameless ghost horse through a desert of forbidden calories. Harv

    Wow, as I might be thinking chocolate, I think of other orgastic bursts also. Naughty naughty me! Great visuals Harvy and another awesome write containing your brilliance for subjects that are so creative. Chocolate? Only you Harvy could pull this one off and deliciously I should say at best.

    Lunch is over, and I'm sucking on this stale poem. . . ! LOL Harv

    Oh you mean mean man lol the imagery is delightful and you executed this perfectly I'm not on a diet but I didn't need this chocolate craving either lol , nicely done



    Please look up "vicarious" in the dictionary. Add just one word: fulfillment. Some of us have learned to "eat" it without "havingng" it. LOL there was no chocolate in my mouth when I wrote it, and none since. Harv

    MMM!!!! Chocolate is like the best and most satifying thing one could ever eat I love it so dearly. Oh yeah the poem it had me so inticed by the thought of chocolate I had to give it a good write great detail.



    A little exta saliva in the mouth never hurt anyone, just keep lips closed around a computer keyboard! LOL Harv

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
