The Word Market

Pluck one from the pile
delicately, deliberately.
Gauge its weight cradled in your palms

Turn it over with a gentle grip
Is it ripe?  Is it right?
Texture is not a trivial thing.

Give it tap and listen to the sounds.
Are they sharp, shallow, shrill,
strong, sturdy, strident?

Taste a taste;
Note the notes
How will it pair with the others?

Inspect as many as you desire
They are after all, free - at first -
The price paid in the absence of another
