How do poems taste?

Bitter, sweet, sour, salty, and, more recently, savory are the Western options. Does each word have an inherent taste or it is in the aggregate --phrase, sentence. Does a writer develop a particular taste palette? Add smell to taste, you arrive at flavor. Perhaps, it’s opt to speak of the flavor of a poem. Then again, perhaps, this is too personal and best left to an individual’s oral cavity.

By the way, do you think ears taste sound?

I love savory -- as taste, as herb, as word, as sound.

    The boy runs round and round
    waving his stick of fire
    A pie for my mommy
    a pig and pie for me!


    We told her sorryness again
    and again you see


    She cannot button all the


    no fair, autumn
    I'm not touching you
