Taste of Wild


She wondered how the forest

would taste

in her mouth,

what parts of it would dissolve

first- the roots, leaves, or soil?

How mud would feel slathered to

every curvature of her body,

how she would feel with a

forest growing inside her.


Does the consumption

of forest

make you wild or


are they mutually exclusive or



She read somewhere that

cravings signal

nutritional deficiency,

perhaps she is

deficient in



maybe everyone craves

forest once in a while,

and every soft,


human boy


consumption of



so she bends to

the forest ground,

smells its wild aroma,

stretches out her tongue

to lick the rich soil,

feels it dissolve

in her mouth


like candy


and smiles.
