Veganism and I
we have a thing going.
and even though Facebook won’t let us tag ourselves
as “in a complicated relationship”
it’s true. I think I’m in love,
but I just can’t commit.

On the surface
I have fallen for her
my poly pleasure, empowering,
energy giving, ethical lover
she draws me in,
shapely curves,
Badu body and all.

She is
so fit.

My lover is delicious. I make sure
I meet her at least 3 times a day,
with some afternoon snacks
for good measure.

My lover is tantric,
she connects my mind, body and spirit
grounds me in the present
her smells and the give of her flesh
under the pressure of my fingers
and a sharp knife
good for you and me

and yet, vivacious Veganism,
my loyalty is not to you
but to my past life

I am not yet married
to the idea of the good
you do me, and the planet,
because of the way
I have been brought up
to lust after meat
tempting my senses
away from the most
revolutionary romance
I have ever known.

But wait for me,
keep for me your sweetness.

I will learn
how to go vegan
and I will give it to you
raw.
