Poems From 10 Years Back - I

In the process of backing up various online email accounts to disk, several old emails/forwards with poetry content have been discovered, and are now presented without comment.

Prandial Plaint
        - Vikram Seth

My love, I love your breasts. I love your nose.
I love your accent and I love your toes.
I am your slave. One word and I obey.
But please don't slurp your coffee in that way.

(from 'All You Who Sleep Tonight')

Seth has featured in these pages before, and the excellent but sadly inactive Wondering Minstrels have a whole bunch of his stuff.
