There are two ways to have a piece of pecan pie.
Served on fancy plate dishes
floral and gilt-edged
with a silver fork.
Cut the tip bite-size
nut-half wedge first bite
sweet and rich the taste
recalling every past pecan pie.
Or cut a slice with a butter knife
finger-morsels and crumb-dripping
ooze-- oh!-- on a napkin if your lucky
but palms and more fingers is fine
and in mouth-size bites
three of four in all
to tongue-watering reception
by instinct of textures
to the being of sated joy
before the crust flakes
and melting made happy
by pecan pie.
There are two ways of making love
and eating pecan pie.

I had a piece today. Pie -- so good. And I couldn't help comparing some experiences.
