I have missed you

It has been too long,
My big black friend. 
I have neglected you. 
The snows and rain
Have kept you under covers. 
It’s time to light a fire 
In your belly.
I want your hot curves
to feed me again. 
Let me give you some salmon,
You give it back to me
skin crackling, blackened
into perfect goodness. 
I want to give you my ribs,
let you tickle them
with your fiery fingers
for hours,
and deliver to me
tasty bliss. 
My grill–I have missed using you!
