THIS I DID FOR YOU

WHEN I INVITED YOU TO DINNER FOR TWO AT MY HOME
YOU WERE DELIGHTED YET A BIT SUSPICIOUS.
CANDLELIT, HOME COOKED FROM ONE WHO WANTS TO GIVE ONLY THE BEST
WHO IS A MASTER AT THE ART OF SEDUCTION
DRESSED IN A FLOWERED SILK KIMONO, BASTING BELOW
TO CATEGORICALLY BRIGHT FUCHSIA LIGHTS JUST FOR ATMOSPHERE
I DECLARED THAT COOKING FOR ME IS AN ACT OF LOVE
OF ALMOST INTENSITY, OF ALMOST INTIMACY
FOR I BAKE, CHITTER AND DREAM OF YOUR RESPONSE TO IT.

WHITE WINE, FLAMBEED LEMON SOLE, SALAD ALL COLORS, SERVED ON FINE CHINA
RECIPEED CRANBERRY SAUCE, CANDIED SWEET POTATOES, ALL GOOEY WITH MARSHMELLOWS
WARM AND STICKY CINNAMON BUNS, CHAMPAGNE AND A GODIVA GRANDE MINT
TO FINISH, GOBLETS, STERLING SILVERWARE AND THOU, MY TEA CRUMPET.

ANOTHER NIGHT, FRESH GARLIC AND ONIONS MINCED BY MY HAND, SAUTEED WITH PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS IN OLIVE OIL WHERE EACH PEEL,
STIR AND CHOP IS AN ACT OF LOVE FOR YOU.
TO CONTEMPLATE TENDER POT ROAST SERVED GERMAN FROM THE UPPER EAST SIDE BUT COOKED BY ME FOR YOU IN OUR KITCHEN.
I WOULD NOT DO THIS FOR EVERYBODY AND ALL THE PAYMENT I REQUIRE
IS YOUR SINCERE SMILE FOR WHAT I HAVE GIVEN YOU: MY EFFORTS AND MY LOVE.

EAT SWEET, BELOVED, BUT WATCH HOW AND WHERE YOU BITE DOWN.
