"Dance. On the lake. How would we do it?"
I still remember that day. The hills were golden with soft morning light, the clouds painted with a rare palette of purples. I'd wanted to catch one and save it in my box, so you took me to the hills, promised we'd climb the tallest one around. You were right; from the top of that hill I could see the peaks of all the others, poking up through the morning mist below us like little ducks in the water. You always keep your promises.
"I suppose we’d have to learn to fly," you’d said with that gentle, kindly smile that always reminded me of a warm breeze playing through the grass.
“Oh,” I’d said, gazing up at the sky. “Will you teach me?”
You told me that as soon as you knew how, you would fly me right to the middle of my lake of choice and we’d dance from sunset to morning-light. The little one with the blue lilies, I’d told you. Then you kissed me and promised

you look and smell so good, I say
if I could have a little taste
no single part of you I'd waste
Become my broth, just give it thought
your head would fit inside my pot
stick of butter, dash of salt
you're yummy and it's all your fault
Cleaver snaps your handy limb
in my roasting pan to swim
clove of garlic, applewood
so lovely, finger-licking good
Stuffing in your torso, sewn
meat just falls right off the bone
gristle-grease upon my bib
as I enjoy your every rib
After this, a day I'll fast
and then I'll save your heart for last
oh what a feast, my Valentine
I love you, and you're MINE!
