It's summertime, which means white or pink wine season for me.

And people around me these past few days have been drinking chardonnay.



"do you prefer red or white?"
he asked politely
genuinely inquisitive
"either, as long as its light"
was my honest response

the waiter brought
an unfamiliar bottle
to our table

and as I swallowed
the thick, buttery tones
with hints of grapefruit

I guessed he knew his wines
about as well as he would know
my bed.
