I have given champagne grapes another chance.
I quite delicately roam my hands down
the tiny bunches
until each grape succumbs
and falls into the bowl.
Then with my head tilted back
I pop a handful into my mouth.
I don't feel cheap,
this pleasure is rare
for a dollar ninety-nine.
Meredith Lee... C.I.A. graduate... began cooking and writing at a very early age. Now her passion is in the form of senryu, haiku, and suggestive prose. Her subject matter is often food. Playing with her words leaves a lot to the imagination and at times will make your mouth....Water!
She is from NYC and now dwells in Phoenix, Arizona, with her 5 urban hens, giving eggs to friends as if they were dark chocolate hearts vanishing in the sun.
