Proofs of Purchase

The following thoughts have filtered from a mind that has been oversaturated with images, screams, romance, text, and sounds since The Carter Administration. If you are not satisfied, then I recommend a double chocolate brownie from Starbucks with a tall bold of the day.

My Cocoa Cure

I once knew a man
Who would walk the line
Pluck a cocoa bean
With a Ghana smile
He would give the bean
Gripped not but twice
Her lips touch the bean
Melting it at once
One day, an explorer
From whence unclear
Shook the trees sideways
From there out to here
Children in Berlin
Smile at newlywed bars
Colored costumes taped
Named Lindt and Mars
The fire this time
Singed Aztec tongues
Which whispered, thrice snickered
At moving gums
The Footsie raises it
From quid up to P
Love and cocoa
Shines from sea to sea
