Feast, M.Rees

By MaryWillow Rees

We prepare the bed as for a feast
Smoothing the sheets in preparation,
The appetizer

As we slowly work our way through the meal we never want to end
Lingering over courses interspersed with conversation
Savoring each delectable morsel
Laughing with delight then
Beginning again
Never full, often satiated

I don’t remember sharing food or wine with you
We feast
