#poem #poetry #amwriting rose


the problem with rose is that it never improves
beyond the anaemic acidity of first tasting -
were it not for the alcohol it would have no hope -

the bottle advises it be sloshed with fish
and I'm half tempted to get out my rod
to see if this marketing speak is sound advice

or just another way to improve my diet -
I probably could manage five bottles of rose
a day -providing I had a supply of andrews
