A Taste – A Poem by Brandon White

Hello Friends,

Snow is falling outside as I write to you now. I’m feeling better after a few days of recovery from minor surgery, slowly pushing myself to do more each day.

I’ve been thinking a lot about expectations over the last few days. A free verse poem below.


A Taste:

A taste
You’re lucky if you get one

To study
flavors infinitely complex

Test the nose,
detect floral notes and a hint of bullshit

Think it
and it can be yours

A silver platter
of cocaine and your best friends fingers

Write the poem,
fold it neatly and set it on fire

One more taste
of the life I thought would be mine

and I'll dig
a ditch to die in


-Brandon White
