Dinner

They met each night
In honor of
Etiquette

Elbows off the table
Silverware in its right place
The food treated
With frosty reverence

Dysfunction was no excuse
To sacrifice
Civility

This serves as a good example of how everyone internalises and absorbs poetry. The vision you have presented is different than what I had in mind when I wrote this!

i'm sure it was... but that's also the beauty of great poetry... the very fact that it is open to so many readings.

@Piyu: Indeed. Thanks for stopping by.
