Life Biscuit
for Dickson Wasake & Sonia Farmer

all the meals anyone eats
over the course of a lifetime

what they extracted from these
these substances, flavors, combined
offered us, offered up

most exquisite element
of several breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks
numbering in the tens-of-thousands

when we're bare, when we make love
and salivate over, on, into
what is the most delicious dessert

concocted by who we’re making love to
for us to savor what they savored,
what they saved for us of all they ate
and ingested
