  You could have a big dipper   

Prunus Avium by Marisa Silva-Dunbar

From the Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch

I have been crowned

with sweet rubies—

revel for me,

my lustful myrmidons.

Writhe wantonly—

wrap jasmine vines

around your thighs.

Offer me a blood rich cioppino,

Baccalà alla Livornese.

Feed me raspberries

the color of sapphires—

suckle from their stems.

Consume pomegranate seeds

like Persephone—starving.

I feast on your intoxication,

brimming with desire—

skin supple and bare.

Present me with bouquets

pouring out of every orifice—

they all belong to me anyway.

Do not hide in the orchards,

and vineyards—every touch,

kiss, bite, fuck is for my entertainment

Smear the pulp, and be reborn.

I am the manifestation of Venus—

adorn yourself with my pearls.

I am your nectar—you, my ambrosia.

Devour me.
