The Cork Sniffer – Henry Bladon

man with orange   artwork এর ছবির ফলাফল
The sommelier lives
in a lead-lined flat
and dresses
in orange dungarees
on his day off.

He has an
orange umbrella
in his coat stand
for when it rains.

He goes to work
wearing orange underwear
beneath his uniform

and spends his evenings
sniffing the corks
of the wine bottles
ordered by ignorant diners.
