strawberries after sex – a poem

strawberries after sex

taste sweeter

especially when they’re hydroponic

you had to look up what that meant –

its when you grow plants from water

not soil

its more sustainable that way

it must be cheaper too

because the box was $3 instead of the usual 6

the strawberries tasted sweeter

than any other strawberries I’ve ever had

and it’s not just because we ate them after sex.

the rain fell outside

bringing the scent of sweet, wet earth into the bedroom

I inhaled,

looked into your eyes

and thought

i’m not sure if we’re made from water

or soil.

i’m not sure if we were made to be sustainable.
