How To Eat A Colorado Peach

Pick out the ripest peach:
wash in warm water
rub off fuzz
cut into quarters.

Insert a piece of peach
half way into your lips then
offer the other half to the lips
of your lover — you both
nibble at the peach until your
peach juices.

Yes, juices run
down your chins to
chest —
kissing —
lick up
skin juices.

Eat another piece:
and again
until your kisses
eat all of your peach. . . and. . .
