Receipt for an Acquired Taste

     Black market
     where my lips found purchase
     not so loathsome

     a fair exchange—
     salt shadow for
     brackish appetite—

     you to your self interest
     and I to my own
     indulgences, in trade

     as negotiated in advance
     over our rival loves
     to bitter indigestion

     kept like an afterthought
     on the tongue's numb tip
     for the tax deduction.

    Wow…this one really speaks to me of a negotiated relationship…powerful words.
