I like how you connect the taste of food with human emotions (there is nothing better than love and desire associated with delicious food), but what makes this poem original is the kind of untypical food you have chosen, the avocado, and the way you combine all the words. I like each closing verse in each stanza, sometimes a bit ironic like “what can separate them? not a guillotine!”, and, at the same time, a bit like feeling the typical Christian guilt for experiencing lust as “they’re willing partners in gastronomic crimeI”. And I ask myself: Is pleasure while eating delicious food or experiencing sexual lust a crime? Perhaps, regardless whether we are great Christian believers or not, many of us come from this tradition, Catholic or Protestant, so anchored in our individual and collective subconscious that those verses appear in many a poet. Another clear example of this is “complementing one another in velvety sin”. BTW, I love avocados too and often make guacamole sauce, so delicious!

Damn, I should try guacamole sauce at least once in my life! Avocados are a new favourite of mine. As for your thoughts regarding our poem, you definitely have the full measure of it. We were certainly going for the ‘sin isn’t really such a sin’ angle on this.
