My Mind Served On A Platter
Pass Me Around And Take A Bite
What is this I see ?
It looks disgusting and gross
It is a delicacy ?
Why don't you try a small piece ?
It will tease yor taste buds with a wild concoction of flavors
From the sour to sweet
Rich and bold with a kick that I can hardly describe
Each bite makes you beg for another
An aphrodisiac to the palate
After all in a world filled with millions of recipes and favorite family secrets
I have reached into your soul where no one goes
I have touched your emotions and filled your body with vitamins and nutrition to its extreme
You will not find the grease or high in fats and calories
What a wonderful high protein snack or a delicious dessert that will leave your taste buds satisfied and craving for more
Many have thought it could not be done
Something so different yet conventional too
Each bite will bring on memories that you have experienced some time in your life
Also combined with a new memory in process
Is that a gravy or a sauce ?
Drizzled so carefully to cover each peace
To give it a richness and a spice I have yet to figure out
With all my years of eating and savoring every mouthful
My mind has taken a journey that has left my body helpless
My eyes were deceived
The smells and sweet aroma have perked all my senses
The texture is soft yet crunchy when you least expect it
I am not sure if it is covered in fruit or nuts to enhance another flavor
As I look toward others who take a tempting nibble
They are as astonished as I was for sure
Some people seem to go into a temporary shock
As one thought will blend with another like a smorgeous board of ideas that can not be real
The textures are delightful
There is an ambiance that leaves its presence
There is a light airy puffiness that makes each mouthful uncertain and yet daring
For you have now pushed beyond any expectation and are filled with on going antication what comes next
As the dinner is served there is nothing left of this main entree others would call it a five course meal
Every emotion has been activated like you turned on a switch
The warming feeling of a home cooked meal and the excitement of the crunch of Kentucky Fried Chicken
The powerful pucker from lemonade
The juice of a prime rib and the gamey taste of duck
The tenderness of a vegetable cooked aldiante
The richness of a homemade spegetti sauce and as fulfilling as soup
The smells keep changing and reawaking my senses or tricking them to believe
Now not trusting what I know or what I really believe
I go on insinct and with all my experience I am still left unqualified
I try to reason and come to my senses
A flash of heightened exciement and the thrill of a matador or a bull rider
Each mouthful cautiously taken like a wild ride from a roller coaster that plunges into the unknown
In the darkness that swollows up the soul
I am left mistified and blown away
For I have come here expecting one thing and I have received so many others
So I leave with you one thought
If your mind was served on a platter
What would you see ?
Something shocking or repulsive ?
A love affair in the making or a memory done rare ?
It is up to you to decide what to eat or what to hide ?
