Mouthing, mumbling, indistinct;
without preamble.
Muttering over supper plates
supplying standard fare.
Staple teaspoons of fruity,
saucy, scandals, falls;
tittle-tattle between bites,
bringing platitudes to play.
Perhaps we’ll pause for pudding
and permit the taste to linger
longer on the palate.
Pet lapdog’s ever ready
and waiting on the bed
with wordy dreams of toast.
