A Man Eats Chocolate
A unicorn stands before a field of lilies Her hoof strikes the ground silently as she snorts out the morning’s mist She readies She steadies Then charges head long into the lilies Just as she reaches them the lilies pull themselves away all the while shouting “Ole” The sun peeks through a long canvas of clouds like a child peeking through a hole in a circus tent An early morning moon glances over its shoulder as it’s on its way to keep a promise made to a poet and a silver spoon Tall trees of ice-cream green allow the licking of the fat cats that surround them while the mice that are mounted upon their cat steeds feel the purring beneath their saddles Cherubs munching on the meringue of clouds laugh happily at the sky With clouds stuck in their teeth and dipping from their smiles They reach for and drink a cow or two to wash down the remnants of the morning Long Living mirrors play like school children running and shouting “Look at me “looking at you Look at the eternities we create The forevers we can make" The cows, now done feeding the cherubs wander over to the playing mirrors to see and to join in the strange fun I find my legs and I run over to view this wondrous sight of gathered mirrors I say to the mirrors “This is amazing I never beheld an eternity” In a puzzled wink of light they say to me “Only one? Stand where you are and we will show you more” With that they bent backwards then at the middle Behold there was another forever Then they bent forward and twisted here and there Yet another and another An infinity of infinities The ground between the facing mirrors began to let go Down I went or up I ascended I simply do not know I found myself sitting another place Of living, speaking grass “We know” they said “Where you want to go” “How could you” I said “When I don’t know" “Trust us” “Trust us” came a billion chants “You have an inner knowing beyond your conscience grasp” With that I laid down as if I were an infant lowered by his mother The blades of grass carried me along passing me over their fingers like so many picnic ants I just lay there watching a sky of living, breathing blue After a time I began to see many a fleshy nymph Ten in all There was two large ones with eight smaller ones in their keeping floating just above my eyes Wait a moment there’re are not nymphs there’re toes Strumming on a table top of air “Are you just going to lie there?” Came a lovely voice I stood up as if helped up by warm,liquid palms of air And what did I behold ? Why, it was my muse reclining nude upon a mushroom Of course the mushroom was as grateful as I She swiped the air with a swish of her hand and there appeared a chocolate truffle Its protest gently muffled as she enveloped it with her petaled lips “Hummmm” A thousand yeses collide “Hummm A million orgasms she finds All exploding ever evolving within the worlds of her kiss “Oh muse” I puffed up “I, a poet be Tell me why women prefer chocolate to me?” “What is the secret What is the pull With what sweet chains does it hold you So that I might tell the world” “Well” she winked with her eyes and her smile “I could tell you but then you would have to die” “Oh please, sweet muse I beg of you For this I must know Death by chocolate or death by you I simply must have the truth” “So be it my poet” “So be it my love” Then she placed in my mouth a chocolate truffle and upon me laid her lips I felt the shades that the chocolate portrayed The warmth, the tickle the for sure and the fickle All the worlds of wow colliding with all the relevance of now Flavor upon flavor a thousand thoughts within I warmed here I heated there I screamed “I get it” “I get it” The scream became a whisper spoken into her kiss

I was simply looking through the poem list and this title caught my eye and I had to read. Dude, what were you smoking when you wrote this? Fantastic scenery from a wildly imagined world twisted around our pitiful reality. I have to say I think this is one of your best. Keep writing, my friend! :)
