Some are not impressed with oysters. But consider what Seamus Heaney wrote: “My tongue was a filling estuary, my palate hung with starlight: As I tasted the salty Pleiades Orion dipped his foot into the water.”

I ate the day deliberately, that its tang might quicken me all into verb, pure verb.

— Seamus Heaney
