Betty O’Hearn, Cherries

with 6 comments

Betty O’Hearn

Red beauty, sweet anticipation
draw me in. Stem yielding from center,
flesh rolled between fingers.

I bite carefully, wait
to feel you explode.

Expensive, I know,
but you are better than chocolate,
and I am worth it.

Bio: Betty O’Hearn lives in Hickory, NC. Her previous work was in “Dead Mule”.
