Sometimes just a bite of chocolate
or whatever sweetest thing you desire.
Even making love has its rhythm and finish and rest.
I read this poem, then another.
Feel the sweet spark of thought,
the agony of understanding,
the pleasure of words weaving a thought, a picture.
I read another and find I simply can’t.
I’m satiated and will rest,
enjoying the morsel I’ve already bitten into,
the love I’ve already been filled with.
To have more would be greedy.
To have more would diminish the flavor
of what I’m still digesting.
