I Don't Like Wine

The red or the white
Or the hard hard truth
Matters not to me
Which you choose
I’ll pretend to sip
Looking over the rim
My most sultry gaze
On your beloved face
And then we’ll laugh
Because candlelight
Feels silly to us –
Aren’t the Braves on tonight?

  1. darn the finery, just to be with you is enough...i'll take a blanket picnic on the living room floor any day...

  2. Apparently, you bring your own spark to the fire.

  3. How 'bout the Cards or the Twins? I share your passion for baseball, I also love wine! Nice job.

  4. Wine and baseball don't mix. You have made the right choice! Now beer and baseball....

    This was very well done. Vb

  5. So true, I have to be in the mood for wine or it just sends me asleep.

  6. Haha, I'm not a big fan of wine either. I like this little playful vignette.

  7. Ah brilliant write, I love it ...I am not always in the mood for wine either.

  8. nice piece - and refreshingly honest

  9. wine is something i can take or leave too thank you

  10. SULTRY! wheeew-
    I would love to be that- like I used to think I was... and maybe back then I was!
    Thanks for the reminder.

  11. Oh, leave the wine for me. Ha!

  12. A down to earth approach there!

  13. It's football that I have to watch...but I like my wine though. Great poem.

  14. You are so cute. I love your honesty, Bug.

  15. Wonderful write! Wine for me is Christmas dinner or special nights out - otherwise lager please!

    Anna :o]

  16. ha, ha, ha, ha.

    I once read some survery that said 70% of wives would prefer cheesecake to more "sultry activities" so I guess that most likely goes for preferring wine too! :)

  17. so many men would love your version of romance! :)

    But Jannie Funster, I want the cheesecake, sultry activities AND the wine!

  18. I loved it! But I must admit I do love my wine. Rarely in a goblet though. I like the Italian wine glasses that resemble juice glasses.

  19. I love the way your poetry caresses and loves on the relationship between you and Dr. M...

    it always makes me think, and often makes me smile or laugh!

  20. Whether we like wine or not, it's a good poem.
