Slow Poetry Movement

For poetry enthusiats
today is national slow poetry day
so go ahead
lentement lentement
give some mindful mastication
let the word sauce dribble
as they perambulate peristaltically
to oesophagus's underworld
awash in your acid
their vitality absorbed
feel their nourishment
sense their resonance
their rhythm
on your palette
pass some on
(to a friend)

Shouldn't it be "lentamente?" Whatever, I like it nonetheless.

Dear whoever, I guess lentamente is ok if you have ,shall we say catholic tastes, however in my mind this is definitely a french job.
