palate 

slick tongue over palate 

trying to recollect 

even a fragment 

of a notion 

of a feeling 

almost felt. 
 
 
poured over whiskey 

stump of oak

laid bare 

barrel aged 

oblivion 

swallowing 

regret.

  1. What an excellent and evocative piece. It’s lovely to see what real poets come up with, not the likes of me who occasionally hack around with haiku in between writing stories! Thank you for stopping by this week and following my blog – I hope you’ll enjoy it and I look forward to reading more of your work. Cheers, Nik
