I will lay out my questions and leave them
unanswered on the page as though they were
a tabled feast displayed ad hominem
for honored, hungry guests who would prefer
a deconstructed meal or a buffet
to more traditional, formal dining,
allowing them the choice they find gourmet,
trusting them to do the right combining.

I’ll give them all that they might need to know
regarding the ingredients and such,
and, by example, I might even show
suggested pairing, but with a light touch.

I won’t imply there is a wrong or right,
just serve an epicurean delight.

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.

Thanks, Sharon, however
I didn't intend sarcasm. I actually am trying to learn a lighter touch with my poetry. Perhaps you felt a residual defensiveness toward the critique that led me to this revelation about my work, but I genuinely want to allow each reader to serve themselves, according to their taste. Bon Appetite.

I haven't been around for a while and finding this poem by my intelligent friend is a delight. This light handed but no less well thought out and clever as all the poems I have read from year in years past. Thank you I enjoyed this!
