Pop a rich, shiny square into your mouth
and feel it's texture,
at first a solid little shape,
wedged firmly on your tongue.
See how long you can hold it there
as the squareness softens
and the edges drip warmness around your palate.
Pureness of dark cocoa beans spread flavour and
the fullness ripens
and slithers down your throat.
A faint tinge
of lemon essence escapes,
the acidity complimenting and soothing.
