BLENDER

I threw the past
in a blender –
some of this,
some of that –
and gave it a taste.

There was a memory
of strawberries
and the scents
of spice and women.
There was wine.

I had expected
bitterness,
to spit out
the flavors of pain
and regret.

There was none;
only the sad
subtle tinge
of forgotten dreams
remained, mixed

with some of this
and some of that.

not one of my better efforts -- just fooling around with the blender image. a lot of my recent stuff has not been very ambitious.
