When strange paths cross

petite syrah
honey mustard pretzels
gummy bears
the tantalizing
tickling of the

these flavors dance
with one another
never having met before
but i introduce them
in the most unlikely

why shouldn’t they meet
they each have their own
unique path to
my tastebuds

enjoy this limited friendship
as i don’t plan to introduce
the three of you to each other
ever again
