I read you with my fingertips, Pausing to regard the inches, to savor each, Like a meaty word that I turn over in my thoughts, In careful consideration ... of its flavor. * This is a form I call "Liberum Divisa", and it's composed of a four-line verse taken from a Free Verse poem of mine called "To Read You", written on December 26, 2016. *

downright racy, Greg. A model quote taken from a longer equally delightful provocative piece.
