Wine Tasting

Sam Yau


I’ve been the person

who’d fall for

the first one

who came along


This time

I’d change


I would


look

swirl

sniff

sip

and savor


the exquisitely curated

rich varietals

in the perfect

sequence


But I can no longer

delude myself


can’t hide behind

an idyllic new life

you’re not the

center of


my fear of

being trapped

in a single taste


This morning

I woke up engulfed

in the pain of the

looming separation


How I would

pine for you

when the iron bird

fades into the cloud


How I would

run away

in clever ways

only to find

your face swirling

in my heart


Once more

I tore the

tasting menu

to pieces


There is only one
