greasy sauce
delicious oh so delicious
shall I take a bite
of ribs curved
over a plate
grabbing the ends
delicately painting fingers
as the morsel
of gloppy goo
reaches my lips
openly awaiting
tender flakes of flesh
squirting juice inside
the edges of my mouth
serving as borders
failed without struggle
as the track marks
seem to spread on impact
leaving a trail
of spicy tomato bits
speckling the skin
in motion
while tasty pieces
are devoured within
vying for another bite
before the last is finished
even when covered
in the most delectable
greasy sauce
