Love Sandwich

My heart,

like a sundried tomato

in this desert heat.

Gourmet tangy ingredient

on the sandwich of your love.

It’s shriveled, this corazón,

yet still would over power

those younger buttery avocados you favor.

Remember that

when you have to fiddle

with the lemon juice to maintain

their fair complexions

and delicate demeanors.

I am true flavor,

the back bone of a savory condiment

indulgent in your mouth,

on your tongue.

I am complex and encompassing

without apologies.
