Ginger bread man

I did an online food order and the delivery came with a free ginger bread man/woman/person

Androgynous baked golden creation

smiling, painted and lifeless .  Tempting me.

a single bite I crave, perhaps a leg

or two

Soft on my lips

warm on my tongue

sweet and spiced welcomed into my mouth

just one bite more.

but not the face

with your plastered on smile and dead eyes

neat little jacket between my teeth

I gobble you down

and deny you ever existed…
