Do it With Tenderness

If you wish to arouse desire in me,
do it with the tart red strawberries of summer
with sugar and cream and clean, wet fruit
you can bring me to knees, begging
the taste of raspberries,
and smooth, dark chocolate
you can make me tremble, softly
sipping at chilled chambord

If you wish to arouse my affections,
do it with grace, with tenderness
speak to me in the language of delight
you can make me smile, bashful
just run your fingers through my hair
kiss my hand, my palm, my forehead
you can make me blush, I'm easy
leaning on your shoulder
