Chocolate Round Two (Poem)

as I open this box of secret delights
swarms of ambrosia roast through my mind

fueling an eruption of pure hazel lust
igniting a passion for – of all things – dreary coconut

spicy dark shadows break up the mix
marching together with legions of peppermint

spattering the nougat, all drizzled and crushed
delicately infused with rich cacao dust

releasing heavenly flavors in every bite
eager, I open the lid to your valentines
