Bayou Baby

I’ll be your Bayou Baby
if you make me a wreath
of magnolia
The sinuous scent will sizzle and strum
and become one with me
and you can put your hand on the small of my back

I’ll be your Bayou Baby
if you make me an anklet
of Spanish moss
I will dance a second line in
Muses’ glittered stilettos
with a praline between my teeth
and you can put your hand on the small of my back

Ask me to be your Bayou Baby
and I’ll fill you with my presence
just know you’ll be hungry when I’m gone
I’ll leave a trail of splintered pecans
and when they return you to me
I’ll put your hand on the small of my back
