OLWG# 287- Justine


Written for OLWG# 287



What kind of wine does one serve a ghost?
Not the cheapest wine.
Neither, the top shelf;
not for the likes of Justine.
 

Justine, whose
frank point of view,
ready wit,
reckless nature,
generosity,
inimitable good temper,
and high spirits
were known far and wide.
 

Justine, whose indiscretions appealed to an entire generation, long past, that welcomed her as the antithesis of Puritanism.
 

I expect her to visit my room tonight so,
I’ve laid in fine cheeses, oysters, and caviar.
I’ve considered
a Sauvignon Blanc,
or an Albariño?
(a reliable ‘go-to’ with seafood)
Perhaps, dry Riesling?
 

No, Champagne! I’ll pick up a bottle at Walmart.
The bubbles should contrast with the soft texture of the oyster.
The umami flavours of both should work together.
 

Now:
What to wear?                                                   


This week’s prompts were:

  1. ghosts in my room
  2. the cheapest wine
  3. what were we thinking?
