Dogs and Gods

RDP Thursday: PLUM


I want to be sweet


I want to shine and I want people to paint pictures of me

to create recipes that feature me

to sit under my tree and dream and freak out when the yellow jackets

start to buzz around their faces


I want artists to draw me

and I want to have my likeness stitched on fancy underwear

I want to be prized by Vegans and Wiccans

and celebrated at their altars and their restaurants named

after their Dogs and Gods.


I want to be a plum

I wanted to be devoured

and swallowed,baked and stewed and candied

and in the end I hope you devour so much of me

you spend hours upon hours in the littlest room in the house.
