The Devil’s Diet - Oct. 14, 2023

burgers and fries

pizza hot dogs

nachos and burritos

ice cream sundaes

hand-crafted cookies

as our lives together

become a bit too bland

we reach for the devil’s diet

to kick start

the angel’s passion

add decadence to dinner

some debauchery to dessert

and love stops groaning

from boredom

with half-closed eyes

and pops them open


and on fire
