Barbara Tramonte’s most recent poem to appear here was “Solitude” (January 2019).

The Scold
By Barbara Tramonte

A chocolate-covered cherry
Drenched in liqueur
In Seville

Those three glasses of vino blanco
That washed the sardines
Down during dinner
Are good, dear self

I allow this macaron
Nut turtle
And drizzled truffle
To delight me
In these scant moments
Left on earth
Is it not intrinsically right
To do this,
Scolding brain?
