Desire is everywhere. I was recently presented with a number of items and invited to choose the one I desired – I went straight to a lemon.
This lemon wants to have my attention – and it does.
It wants me to break open its bright yellow skin.
As I do, my desire increases with its
Its desire meets and engages my desire.
We are in a mutual desire relationship.
This lemon wants its seed released
to germinate, to reach for the warmth,
then the light of the sun.
This lemon wants to express its treeness –
to root, branch, leaf and blossom –
to open its blossom, exude nectar and pollen –
to arouse the desire of bees.
The exotic, erotic blossom desires to pollenate
and be pollenated.
This lemon embraces the desire of
seed, tree and blossom to fruit –
and requires the whole cosmos
for its fulfilment.
I desire to be a willing participant
in this relationship of desire –
to see, to touch, to hold, to smell,
to break into, to taste –
