eating the chewy bits
self-censorship is a thing
tastes and perceptions
of acceptability
permitted discourse
on edibility can vary
across all lines and
sometimes an it harm none
isn't good enough for some
outrage an itch easier
to scratch than
tongue with taste
higher pH goodness
too good to waste
not flushed away but
still somewhere slipped
inside I'm remembering
rolling the chewy bits
around teeth palate cheeks
sipping ruby wine
