Dilantha Gunawardana


Fruity Lips


Insipid lips
Perforated of passion
Like the shriveled skin
Of a sun-dried cherry tomato
Yearning to be vitalized
By the imprint of man
To summon the rich succulence
Of a crescent of watermelon

    Dilantha you rock. Natural, graceful, a ballad of words, so gentle yet so ferociously passionate. (Report) Reply
