A Stable Table


You sat there
As I sit on my chair
A setting just so for two
Served for us to dine so debonair.

The ambiance I find detracts
From this canted sway I counteract
Jostling of such formalities
Startling my senses as I react.

This place is set
Upon social etiquettes
An elbow upsets and dips
Tilting the hems of your linen dress.

Spilling of my wine
Once more this time
It’s the little ways
You are so inclined.

I’m seeking some stability
I must call the Maitre d’
You can’t keep me quiet,
“A stable table.” — “Please.”
