The problem with desire that’s inconceivable

Spread the love

Luscious
these thoughts
that seem to swallow
on October day,
as I sliced an avocado
then sought to peel off the skin.
Are you ever tempted
to begin again
where nobody knows your name
speak of desires decadent
β€˜yuck,’ he smirked behind the tent.

    Nice rhyme between “skin” and “again”.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Frank πŸ˜€ so good to see you ❀️

  2. Love the subtle rhyme with skin/again.
    That last line is just killer.

    Love this pondering aloud and the slamming comment – typical day in the life of our household.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, V.J πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  6. This one ends with a bit of a mystery for me. Mastering the art of “harvesting” avocado can be a task, for sure. I’m smiling … and wondering.

  8. You gave us a whole poem without all the fooling around some of us did; kudos to you for that-[-reminded me of TV series CHEERS–where everybody knows your name; smile.

    I can’t think of anything I want and lust after more than an avocado. πŸ™‚

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely πŸ˜€ thanks for stopping by, Ali ❀️

  13. I liked the way you used the avocado to illustrate the pealing away of your desires! Men never seem to understand “what a woman wants?” Great poem.

      Thank you so much, Dwight πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  14. Mish says:

    I feel a very interesting story lies behind the poem, eluded to in the last line. Very intriguing. I like the casual inclusion of the avocado. Nice work, Sanaa.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Mish πŸ˜€ so good to see you ❀️

      MuchπŸ’›πŸ’›β€love

  16. I love the beautiful way you convey the difficulty of peeling an avocado, Sanaa, the slant rhyme ‘skin/again’.and the killer couplet with the prompt word! What was he doing smirking behind the tent?

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Kim πŸ˜€ so glad you enjoyed it ❀️

      PS: I put him there in the closing line deliberately to add to the story πŸ˜‰

    Are you ever tempted
    to begin again
    where nobody knows your name… like that!

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Rajani πŸ˜€ so good to see you ❀️

  18. kaykuala h says:

    Those unfamiliar and uninterested best be ignored. Need not have to waste one’s bother. Best to concentrate on those nicer people around and they are aplenty once they know our name!

    I hate the word “Yuck” you can cross him off the list! Luscious thoughts require sensitive responses.

      Definitely πŸ˜€ thanks for stopping by, Robin ❀️

  20. so rhyming…love how you use the avocado here!!

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Sreeja πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  21. I enjoyed the struggle with the avocado as counterpoint to the pondering in the poem.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Sherry πŸ˜€ so glad you enjoyed it ❀️

  22. HA says:

    Ooh, interesting β€” I liked how you used this particular action to denote the temptation of doing it all over again. That ‘yuck’ makes me wonder though and acts as a good contrast to the decadent feel of the previous lines.
    A clever write, Sanaa! πŸ™‚

  28. Marian says:

    Love this, Sanaa! A snapshot. Yes, I’m often tempted. Or not tempted, but wishful. I like eavesdropping on these two and learning how they both lean, on escape and avocados both. πŸ™‚
