bon appétit


Dinner served.
Wine poured.
Bread broken
Alongside silence;

Salt shaken,
Pepper sprinkled,
Steak sliced;
Rhythmic respite.

Cling, clang
Crockery chatter.
Swiped glances
Tongue-tied, banter:

Chomp, slurp
Sniff, sip;
Interrupted, often.
Monosyllabic exchange.

Fork, knife;
Laid together.
5 ‘o Clock, platter.
Tomorrow; repeat.
