A Matter of Taste


It’s all the same

except when it’s not

A taste of forbidden fruit, sweet

except when it’s not

That half-moon wheel of pungent cheese, exquisite

except when it’s not

the lure of an impeccable blend of flavors and

a plate of colors meant to entice, seductive

except when they are not

Perhaps a test…

because sometimes

that bounty of sweetness

borders on bitter and

the promise of palate pleasing beaufort d’ete

falls on the precarious side of bland

Perfection on a plate, in a life,  not always so

Sometimes what’s said to be tasty

by one falls short for another

Things are not always the same

This is a truth I can accept
