But I Digest

alimentary kids

M
ete the meat,
meet the meal.
Masticate.
Roll the bolus
forward
from the olfactory
gustation, gas fumes
loom, wheting zest
[the basal nasal bulb,
a reptilian hub]:
digestive zeal—
sour salted bitter-
better, savory sweet.
Nutrient fruition
follows deglutition.
It’s alimentary.
