Chocolates

CameraZOOM-20140709182537817

The storefront faces the bustling city street
With its collection of Belgian chocolates
Parceled in small gold
Boxes.
The white walled shop
Smells of hot chocolate
And fresh ground
European coffee.
I think of the hot chocolate you
Purchased last winter.
The steamed milk
And cocoa,
The
Delicious shavings layered
On top.
I find myself purchasing
The same drink
Even though
the heat is stifling
Outside.
In a separate bag,
Four truffles
Are carefully placed
Like small trophies,
Inside clear packaging.
As I step into the street
Into  summer
For a brief moment
The sweet familiar smell of
The shop
lingers
Then it becomes
The smell of fragrant skin,

Street food

And smoke. -J. Hamilton
