Windowsill Wine

Windowsill Wine

A Poem by Travis Gibson (poetic heroics)
"

Not all things age well, or like fine wine, as some would say.

"
Fermenting thoughts, spill
From the brim of my mind's eye
And I can no longer suppress
All those vinegar notes
The taste of you has bittered
Like a sour'd wine...
Hopefully, the stain isn't permanent

Some stains don't fade. Excellent brevity and knife sharp with it. You certainly made your point. Better out than in says I. Well done Travis.
