Earthly Pleasure

Earthly Pleasure

A black diamond in the rough. Jagged edges craving to be sliced over innocence. An egg, a potato, handmade pasta, a slab of steak, shimmering risotto, a supple scallop or a sliver of asparagus. Your earthly pleasures are to be inhaled, caressed, consumed, and devoured. You are without gender, curvaceous like a woman and yet renowned as the seed of the earth. A fungus, so intense in scent and flavour defying even a flame, which merely reduces to a mushroom ambrosia. Alluring in your mystery, a temptress to the next conquest. Shyly hiding in the ground waiting to be sought after with the vigour of a lover who can’t resist. Even after the act of indulgence is over, insatiable yearning follows.
