If you had the ears that I did
You’d recognize the tiny PING of sunlight telescoping through crystal
Try the pomegranate, my sweet one
If you leave The State will confiscate your clothes, your books
Your stuffed unicorns and makeup brushes
All that makes you you
I shall purchase you with edible rubies
I'll Buy you you rollerskates and we’ll
Slide from motel to motel till doomsday
You please me, and therefore
You are worthy
Of it all: every photon
Please, my hedonist, bite in

@Alise_Wing I love Greek mythology! I always enjoyed the story of Hades and Persephone.
