Taste This. ~ Michael Graber {Poem}

Via Michael Graberon Jul 18, 2013


Taste This

We’re just this far from the forest,

when a good woman gauged love

by her share of the hunt.


The primal act of having another

raise a fork to your mouth,

brings your body to a blush.


Grilled pork, a civilized return

to our roots, opens three worlds:

the tribal, the urbane, the eternal.


Life feeds on life. Artistry matters.

Something as unexpected as reddening skin

gives a glimpse into the ocean of your eyes.


Inside, a fire

on an undiscovered island says

this is home, taste this—feast.
