But One Close That Day

To augment an argument won
they compromised on dinner
for two
so nonchalance their ambiance
both ordered off the menu

and frowning upon that first
flight of wine,
and a salad fork askew
they seemed to rise
above the room
from the many
that just make do

and after a passable
entree
of course entreaties
ensue
racing from double
entendre
to a galloping coarse
turning
blue

the lady, all thumbs,
alibis her husband,
watching their children three

And the gentlemen speed-dials
a co-habitant, pleading fatigue
and a sudden ennui

But:

with breakfast
comes a cup
of candor

egg on the face
and pancake makeup
runs

and when sugar
gears down
what’s sour
torques
up

And Then:

just last night…
so
shifted

some screamin’ doggerel here ‘bouts, boys and girls….. getting this kind of pitiful out of the way early. But it was fun.
