Words are the apple pie...

"I write poetry 
for the same reason I read it: 
the sound of words, 
their taste on my tongue, 
is irresistible.  
Words are the apple pie 
in my pantry 
that draws me out of my warm bed 
and sends me shuffling down 
the dark cold hall 
in the middle of the night!"

~ Bobbi Katz,
 in The Place My Words are Looking For

Yes, this is why I write and read poetry.  I, too, love the sound of words and their taste on my tongue!  I had never thought of poetry as apple pie before, but I will now! :)
