November Poem-a-Day: Day 18

Prompt: It’s a Tuesday, which means we’ve got two prompts today:

  1. Write a sweet poem.
  2. Write a sour poem.

Taste

Wait, wait, don’t rush.
Roll it on your tongue before you swallow.
You can’t rely on just the first sensation
To tell you what you need to know.
Can you taste it as it turns in your mouth?
Which did you first notice, the sour or the sweet?
Please try another bite my love
And relish every flavor before you decide.
