Scheherazade Incarnate, poem for Valerie

Scheherazade Incarnate
(For Valerie)

Beautiful, Passionate, Sexy,
You want to love her.
But don’t do what Shahryar did,
And most men do — kill the gift —
Eat the fruit and throw away the core,
The essence — and be done with her.

But instead, she’ll go to your head
And heart, with her wondrous stories
Of transformation, keeping you
Transfixed, wanting more —

You’ll never want to leave her
Nor want her to leave
Scheherazade Incarnate
