Table manners

Coyly, shyly, gently.
Dip eyes and
pick up your napkin.

Push the food.
Tiny bite. Nibble.
Rest.

Candlelight burning
and shadows on his
face.

Sip wine.
Lick lips. 

Always the lady but
You want to rip into
The flesh on your plate
The flesh in front of you
Your flesh, his flesh
Your night dark and tangled,
Your morning exhausted.

Sip wine.
Lick lips.
