This is excellent, it reminds me a bit of some of Edwin Morgan’s poetry
It also reminds me not drink too much wine at the event i’m going to tonight!

Thanks you very much Crafty Green Poet (I will now have to invest in some Edwin Morgan poetry) 🙂

Haha … how fantastic.
What a life those connoisseurs must have?
March 4, 2011 at 2:57 pm
Haha, yes some life Tracey – I just wouldn’t be into the spitting part of it (what a waste – haha).

Fresh little poem, not for putting down, good for reading now! Acid body with a leeky mid palate and a strong raspberry finsih.

I read this crazy review of a wine once (don’t even know what wine it was now) that said it would make your tongue feel sexy. Your poem make me think of that review. A delightfully refreshing and vibrant drop!

Thanks Selma (we all need a sexy tongue – haha)

what fun i had, romping with this piece! very funny, too, blahblah ha ha but whats really interesting to me is how the timing or i guess rhythm sort of swirls in it. really cool great poem!

Thanks tipota – I have no time for the lardidarness of wine tasting – haha. The ‘see, swirl, sniff, sip, savour’ are the actual 5 steps of wine tasting, which is even funnier (they missed the spitting -they don’t want to talk about that bit) – so I just had to grab those words for my poem. They’ve done experiments which show that ‘expert’ wine tasters are easily fooled by labels, price and all the extraneous stuff around wine (rather than the actual taste).

ha, ha – I love those ‘tones’ embedded in the blahs

Thanks bluebee – I submitted this a while back and it got rejected in about 2 hours – bwahahaha – might have been a wine buff on the other end of the email 😉

haha – that’d be right
