Bruce Meyer, Mesopotamia: New Poems (Sudbury, On.: Your Scrivener Press, 2009): 47.

1I hunger for love and feed you roses,
2 their perfume fills the room with luxury
3 because once a year we can afford the act
4 of generosity spoken from within the heart
5 that hungers for that flavour of lost paradise
