Aubergine Kiss

Romance on the Big Muddy. French doll
poised on a wrought-iron staircase among vines


drooping with heavy gourds,
her eyes bitter as eggplant flesh.

Her glossy purple lips are puckered.

You think you'll pluck the fruit. Once that hook sets
there's no extracting it.

All it takes is one kiss.

I like the images you draw with the wordle words. I am setting myself a task to have more patience with the wordles, but I fail everytime. I need practice and the inspirtation I find in reading all of these.
