Hmmm... Introspection Relationships Uncategorized


I am a wine cellar unto myself
occasionally decanted as an
aged-to-perfection vintage

I can at times act the vinegar

I am at times sweet, pungent
with varietal undertones

sometimes I am quite dry
an acquired taste not for all

Sometimes people label me
and state what I should best
accompany, what to pair me

though my true friends partake
simply because I am what they like

By poetluckerate

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
