The Flavour of Words

What flavour will my words have

once they are finally given voice?

Will they be sweet like chocolate,

or bitter like grated orange peels,

or sour like ripe lemon juice?

How will that flavour change as

my words rattle around in my mind?

Will it stay the same forever,

or will it change as swiftly as the tides?
