Today’s prompt was to write a poem about the taste of something. Don’t ask me how but this whole poem just came to me whilst walking the dog around the quarry and thinking about the pines.

Lichen.

Let me take you in my mouth.
Or.
My whole body is a swell
of tongue, plump and prime

green and fanned.         I crawl
across                     took a tour

to get here to where
what I want
what I want
what I want

pools in the scoop
of your hollows
-Sweat, fresh and sour
crystal beads your collarbone

and your skin stretched
across tastes like the good

raw earth
