Flavor Enhancer 

 

Between you and me, I have not always liked the taste of scotch. When it first hit my lips, the subtle hint of peat was a shock to my less acquired taste buds. Being young and naive, I continued my quest through the bottom shelf whiskey and even (color me embarrassed) partook in the consumption of cheap vodka.

We all start from somewhere.

As the years went by, I grew more accustomed to the refined taste of the fine libation from Scotland. Starting with blended scotch mixed with ginger, I slowly worked my way up to the single malt and ended at the smokiest, peatiest brands on the market.

My transformation in taste for this beverage traveled a similar path with poetry. In the beginning, it seemed like a mess of words that were painted pretty with a rhyme here and there. However, the more I was exposed to this style of writing, the more I enjoyed the taste.

Artie Richmond’s poetry is my scotch and ginger. His style of prose is elegant enough for a younger me to start enjoying the flavor without overwhelming my taste buds with an abundance of smokiness.

If you don’t consider yourself a fan of poetry, take a sip of Mr. Richmond’s words. You might be surprised by the taste. 

My jeans are stripping, legs feel bare

Miles per gallon bring no conflict for the chuck

I may look different, people might stare

But my home is everywhere you look

No association with your normal panhandler

I give notice to my glorified laziness

Join me, and become my bohemian philanderer

The two of us will be happy and penniless

I will show you my corner in all of the states

We will gain the insight that would make others feel exposed

Your shoes and umbrella are all you should take

The road is always open, lets walk towards the suns glow

Tomorrow will be glorious, there will be no need for any clocks

Just try not to get caught, you might get whipped in the stocks
