How to Eat A Grape

Put the whole grape in your mouth,
piercing the skin ever so slightly with an incisor.
Roll it by sucking at it some,
opening it just a little.
Then, put your tongue in,
rubbing all around the sweet pulpy inside,
drinking down the tart juices,
pressing down with the roof of your mouth,
pressing up with your tongue,
until the soft flesh is flat between them
and, at last, is almost dry.
Then, munch relaxedly on what is left.
Now try it lying on your back.
