Delicto Flagrante

She likes little treats,

a touch cheeky, piquante;

delicto flagrante,

much too much cream

on the side

and a tarte apéritif,

the entrée

to a main course

One must feast with the eyes

She sighs on an olive,

remnant of groves

alive on the hillsides

sun kissed, aromatic,

a charismatic


she does love

a little pampering

the dampening of candles

on a table dressed


over stressed

She lets a moué

slip past her lips

a little purse

in her lap

feeding morsels,

like parcels

of succulent flesh,

fruits out of season,

airborne, flown to her side

dipped and licked

a stone flicked

in the flames

Just a little fuel

to her appetite

the pine scented fire

delightfully flickering

a clock ticking

rhythmically designed

art déco

head to one side

she'll dine

on desire.

She is quite a character, isn't she! But dilecto means of equal fault, so she's not alone in the act. Regardless, I enjoyed your poem. you have a clever way of weaving the tale. :)
