POEM| Banana Bread

As I run a knife through you
I wonder how something
can be thick yet soft
and rough yet smooth
at the same time

Your richness fills me up
before I put you in my mouth
And as usual,
my senses dazzle to your taste
when you’re in

I don’t like bananas,
but I’ll always like you, banana bread.
