a question of taste…

Tam O'Shanter and the Witches by Artist John Faed (1892)

i’ve begun
to wonder
about the difference
between
celebrating life
and
being
desperate for life
both wish
to savour
the flavors
on life’s table
and to drink
deeply from
the chalice
of gaiety
but one seems
a connoisseur
and the other
a hungry pauper
which
are
you
