The White Peach  

Deep-red dashed
with yellow velvet skin
swaddles the palest
yellow-ivory flesh,
drips translucent juices.  

I want to call it her
as I savor the sweet
swirl in my mouth
slide down my throat
satisfy my desire for sugar.  

Afterwards, longings
linger. I want more,
but she is the last one
ready to be eaten.
