"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."

Across the Divide

You talked of food and nutrition...
Good and bad in the culinary world.
You reached across generations, countries, continents.
We all sat at the black table on the red chairs...
You thought this woman was cool, sharp, loved to cook...
Maybe it wasn't so bad to get old,
A wisk and rack brought you together
Still see the two of you at the black table...
One octogenarian, one boy-man of 30,
Testing the waters...And the sauces, the gravies,
Waxing poetic over beans. over bacon.
Sustenance, ordinary or elegant, a link.
Still see you at the table
Reaching across the remains of a meal.
