Ciao Bella Chocolate Sorbet - Elaine Equi

has a dense


as if a whole
devil's food cake

were dissolved
in each scoop.

Delivers Elvis-like

for only 120 calories.
By the last spoonful,

your whole nervous system
and aura

will be permeated
by the ancient Mayan God.

You will see
through the eyes of Chocolate.

Elaine Equi (b. 1953) is a Chicago-born poet currently living in New York and teaching creative writing at the City College of New York and the New School.
