The Beast In You - Poem by Vanish Windows

You kissed my ear
next to the breakfast cereals.
The snap. crackle, pop

of the gaze of the fat woman
pulling muesli off the shelf
deafened me, but you didn't care.

In the meat aisle,
you felt my bum and pronounced it rare,
lean and probably tasty.

You expressed a wish to sample it - later
I said, and hurried on
to the dairy products

but cream was too erotic a concept
and hastily I steered us to
the frozen food

which brought out the animal in you,
you became a polar bear, the
cuddly smothery kind.

Supermarket shopping -
You love it....
Who'd have it any other way?
