(from A Jar of Stars)

A secret box tied up with ribbon.

The label reads “forbidden.

But she had never cultivated discernment or obeyed the rules.

So she opens the box and inside finds a key.

Then she screams as the room turns black.

As her breath quickens, she hears footsteps from behind.

Now blindfolded with the ribbon from the box, she feels a tingling sensation as he rims each nipple with ice.

“The label said forbidden, you did not listen, and now you must pay the price”.

But the punishment is worth the crime as they entwine like the branches of a tree.

Why does forbidden fruit always taste like honey from a bee?
