Funeral Luncheon Phenomenon

After you've been
around a while
bitter things
taste better
and better—
up coffee
beans pure
cacao acrid
hops black
tea etc.—
help you taste
a little stronger
that lengths
are never
anything more
dramatic than just
a little shorter—
I don't think that
I'll ever mind
a little dirt
on portabellas;
a little brush with
something awful
really gets me going.
