We have a winner!
The Flint & Hormel Award*
is hereby proudly bestowed upon our contest winner,
for her inspired effort, entitled
My eyes sparkle as I admire its perfect form
I succumb to its taunting
I quiver as I bring my fingertips to my lips
Wanting desperately to taste it
I lick my finger slowly, savoring the succulent flavor
Slowly opening my eyes,
I bring it to my waiting mouth,
sliding it to the back of my throat,
