Let Taste Decide


is vodka in the freezer
a way of saying you
don’t rate ice cubes?

or more pertinently
a simplification of that
golden rule of age

the one that says
keep your personal
problems on ice

although my quandary
is easily defined – I can’t
remember which applies

my rationale lets taste
decide the how and when
and where of it...
