At dVerse Laura is hosting Meeting the Bar with an invitation to choose one of five book inscriptions and use it as an epigram, and they to write a poem.

The inscription I chose was:
“Alex – a few moments of reading pleasure in return for an evening of sensual delights. Denis” Jean Anthelme
Dear Alex Dear Alex, I've binned the bottles and stowed the leftover chicken, O what a night we had, a drunken reverie fit for Bacchus, like a game of twister gone wrong, interweaving, interloping, our glass always full, I finished the cheese on which we supped, and I washed your skirt that fell with grace, which you left with haste as we dined with lust upon our divine flesh, salted with amour.
