Grapefruit Feast
for D.B.A.

I ate it all
I ate it up
grapefruit I thought
I’d saved piece of

must not ever be
in such a predicament
where you are concerned

however much I eat
I’d want there to be more

however much I ate of you
I know in no time flat
I’d hunger still
I know I would want more

every time I turned
I’d want to find
a whole grapefruit
upon a plate or platter
with the skin off

no more to do
than to pull your plugs apart
bite into your heart
make you laugh
