Nicky's Napkin


]]]

Nicky writes in restaurants while waiting
for her check, sending thoughts to her pen
for a paper-napkin too minuscule in scale;
much runs off onto the table tops for later
diners to blot up, and with awkward elbows,
arms solely seeking to lever, and for
easy access to the meal. But then, possibly,
a waiter wipes all residues up first
and rinses the rag at a drain …?

Nicky doesn't like the cogent designs of some,
and/or cognizant others. Some would in a way
sympathize, though, with the usefulness of that
paper-napkin, and as a tissue to blow their nose.
Is this tragic?
I don't know, i wonder what goD, thinks?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
