Smoked dates

Yes, smoked.  Stuffed with goat cheese & walnuts on a bed of balsamic vinegar  -- all warm and quite confident in taste & texture.  A model for a fine poem, I'd say.   Why?  Because the taste is unmistakeable, balanced, and unusual.  All the elements work without strain.

  1. friends and their friends walking through the woods
    kicking at beer cans and old stumps with worms
    the bodies of swamp plants stinkweed and rye

    the sound of a guitar wailing before bedtime
