Under the table lies a cork
and there,
in the corner;
carelessly kicked off shoes.

Wineglasses stand around
with tired sediment-smiles,
while the crumbled biscuits
are swept away.

As I think back on the
tales that we shared,
and the laughs that we had …

I just remembered;
I forgot to serve the bloody cake!

    Cake? Methinks cheese and biscuits would have gone down better.

    Thank goodness I’m not the only one who forgets to serve something.

    I found red cabbage in the microwave after a party and I nearly always forget to sprinkle parsley although I love it….

    I like the sediment smiles

  21. Ha! What a refreshing, humorous poem!

  22. Renee Espriu says:

    I agree with another’s comments in that, yes, you sure can write and I love this piece and it is the first I’ve read. I will return to see more of what you have here. Nicely written.

  23. Jamie Dedes says:

    Chuckle! πŸ™‚ Nicely poemed. I’ve done that sort of thing myself w/o the excuse of spirits … I’ve been accused (wrongly?) of trying to hord the cake for myself.

  24. sonsothunder says:

    Okay…I’m ready for the cake now…
