There is so much to consider
When pouring a glass of wine:
The meniscal kiss
Curving into the bowl:
promise of lips stained
with a blush that is
anything but bashful.

The size of the glass,
length of the stem,
and how will he hold his drink?
Will he have the lasting power of
a vintage?
The first sip have
a dry or sweet finish?

Will the evening bubble
Like champagne
Or conversation wane,
fermenting past its prime
into a vinegar of stained carpet
or the clang of a broken glass
on a hardwood floor?
I was looking back at an old poem (which isn't posted here but may be eventually) which used the "love is like wine" cliche... I figured I could do something different with that and this is what happened.

Or will he be corked? LOL How many men would ever think a woman would compare them to a bottle of wine? I love your imagination.

I'm so glad you like it, and the others. I really appreciate all your comments, and it's nice for someone to actually read my work!

Oddly, I knew next to nothing about wine when I wrote this, and now that I know a bit more, I was either vague enough that it didn't matter, or I was lucky. :)
