On the Edge (Day 582)

Box open, chocolates 
revealed in all their 
mysterious richness.
Reaching, fingertips 
hover. A fine tremble 
belies the moment’s 
seriousness. Discreet, 
velvety centers revealed 
only to those willing 
to taste, to risk the most 
exquisite disappointment 
on the edge of 
something so sweet.
