    An occasion without a code of mandatory dress
    Location: home
    Event: dinner for two

    Setting: Raindrops rhythmically playing sensual symphonies on rooftops
    While harmonious crackling emanates from fireplace
    Fragrant candles illuminate buffet

    Al Green seduces balancing sensitivity with masculinity

    The feast has been sprawled out.
    He kneels upon tatami mat to cushion knees
    He uncovers served dish
    To reveal a delight to carnal senses
    Elbows resting upon fabric not of table but of divan

    Raised
    It rests
    Bottom firmly secure within hands for control
    Gentle so as to not damage this fragile amber dish

    Inhalation, the scent, a salty vapor

    Mother always warned not to play with food…but some cuisines are meant for play
    Besides, what she’s serving is irresistible

    Pursed lips upon rim
    Strangely soft and firm
    Edging tongue over brim to catch
    Spilled brew that overflows
    Allowing taste buds the seemingly endless pleasures of this meal…

    Mouth reaches humid broth
    Reaction is Overactive lips devour with each motion
    Consumption occurs with noisy slurps in
    A performance of deafening proportions
    Ravenously ravaging this aphrodisiacal banquet
    Not as a man would but as a famished beast
    Only using mouth and hands never utensils (cause that would be just so artificial)

    He be caveman-like in his ferocity
    Seeming as if he, hasn’t had a fit prey for some time
    He takes his fill…
    In his greed
    He’s childlike
    Devouring a favored flavored candy or ice cream treat
    Stimulation of the palate
    He tips the dish to allow the bubbling liquids to gush
    This warm scintillating elixir flows down gullet
    He has licked the bowl clean till it remains moist from tongue-lashings

    She smiles with elation
    Simultaneously she gratifies while being satisfied with her thoughtfully prepared dish
    Her only wish
    That he asks for seconds upon seconds that form into lengths of days
    And that his thirst for the broth would be unquenchable
    So that she might enjoy watching him consume over and over and over and over again
    Yet he formulates a new recipe of seduction
    There is remaining in the bowl a delectable spice
    But sweet,
    Like a mango seed
    Yet the size of a plum pit.
    He’s strangely drawn to suck upon it

    Using just lips, tongue and (of course) hands that allows him visceral access
    He explores this wondrous seasoning with the same wonder and intensity as
    Newlyweds set forth to consummate vows taken in spiritual splendor
    And he derives the same joys
    Who could have thought that dinner for two could be such a phenomenal event?
    Yet these have only been the notes on appetizers…
    Just wait for the main course followed by dessert.
