Who Loves Tacos?

To me, you’ll always be tacos.

You burn my tongue

and stain my fingers

and drip, drip, drip

onto my flesh.

I will remember your taste,

how you tantalised

and teased my tongue,

how I tried to pin you down

and failed.

You will forever be

tacos and margaritas,

fun and flimsy,

sweet and salty,

wherever we go from here,

you will be forever.
