She Ate

 

she ate her
words chewing
deliberately
pondering how
they felt against
her tongue al
dente yet bland
lacking pepper
and zest

she ate her
words chewing
carefully
wondering how
her discernment
could taste so
blah yet burn
like digesting
vinegar

    1. Charlie,

      I devour them. Sometimes, on rare occasions, they lose their flavor or elude me altogether. It takes some hard life hits but it happens. Thanks for stopping by.
