A Celebratory Lunch

Don’t bring misery to the table:

there is no place set for it amidst the

wine and well-wishers and it goes with

neither meat nor fish, it

grates with cheese, curdles dessert,

sours faces, makes the vase of

love-in-idleness wilt as we all

consult our watches and wish we

could be elsewhere,

crumbling bread not breaking it as your

black mood unearths our own like a

corpse from a shallow grave.

    O, I read this through tears. How very sad. How I would like to see that changed. How much I wish you good cheer and joy with your friends and family. How much I wish you well. Can that be changed for next Father’s Day? How much I wish that for you.

    as your black mood unearths our own
    like a corpse in a shallow grave.

    Your ability to create such vivid images is amazing!
