chew

come in
sit down
grab a fork
an empty plate
plenty of food
for thought
though the conversation
will be work
it’s not
so
tough
chew with your mouth
closed
keep your arms
off the table
with the safety on
please

too many cats
kept in the cupboard
two little jars
on the wide front stoop
to the baker
and the fishmonger
find some pity
on this fresh lot make
of empty hours
clear and bright new days
