Unwanted memories.
Chew and swallow them.
There is no erasing
them, no matter how hard
you try to. They linger.
The taste of tears and
old burned love letters.
Rancid. Dark and oily.
Grief washes over me.
Uninvited and
destructive mixed with my
anger, sometimes.
Occasionally, I
taste fear as well. Stale and
aged but still pungent.
You never know, until
it is too late, the price
of experience.
