Fearless Of The Aftertaste

by Philip F De Pinto

The thought was freeing
Everything was her cup of tea
You would never catch her looking and seeing
Before she leaped and though she makes haste
To order another cup she is clever
Enough to fend for herself in such
Brewed or unbrewed now and ever
Fearless of the aftertaste

True to her word
As a matter of record
There was not a trace of accent
In her choice of lover or cuisine
She ordered both sight unseen
So you know
At the outdoor bistro

And whatever dollar and cent
There was to pay for such she would
As one who never knocks on wood
And is perfectly accepting of the lumps in the end

You have described me as well in this which you penned. No regrets. I always told my students and my daughter, "do what you think you must,but be willing to take the consequences." I live my life that way as well. Believe me I have taken a lot of consequences, swallowed them whole, but the adventure was worth the swallow and the chew. "there was a trace of accent in her choice of lover or cuisine." This is definitely me.....lovely ode.

Quite the gal, carefree in all dimensions. I like how you've used food and drink here. Thanks for this, Philip.
