Philology XVIII


say the word for a photographer
anticipate it with a friendly wine
and conversation in a woody room
resplendent with joyous Monet
dreamy Chagall vivid Van Gogh
conversation that spreads out
onto the soft mown ripe lawn
and banters about with familiar
folk mellow with the comforts
season it with soft jazz live
from around the gleaming grand

Set out upon a teak cutting board
to ripen in the softening afternoon
while the bordeau breathes and
the lager chills and the work of the
afternoon winds down in anticipation
of relaxing conversation in love
and comfort of two who have lived
together for the days and years
and now over woody Oka pungent
two year cheddar smoked gouda
buttery ripe brie tart gleaming blue
and a dab of rich cognac paté on
a stoned wheat cracker we relish
each other’s company and stillness
and we enjoy our lives together
