Good Wine

They say that a good wine

improves in taste the longer

you keep it in the bottle.

That means years and years

of leaving it in your cellar

just anticipating the way

those sweet grapes will taste

the second they hit your tongue.

I wonder if people are more like

good wines than they know.

I, for one, would be a champagne

bursting with overwhelming bubbles

when you finally take the cork out

but I’ll be worth every drop.
