Some things, draft no. 2

Some things are like gum,

a stick of gum you chew

that loses flavor almost before it hits

your tongue.

Other things are like stew,

a pot of stew that gets better

each day it sits,

in which you find some deep new taste

every time you chew.

I wish more of those things for you,

and a life to match it, too.
