  • That Fatal Lunch

    A Poem..Destination unknown..


    That Fatal Lunch.

    Lines shimmer in the heat
    The mirage is quite vague And we..
    Under a parched brown almond tree
    Baked by the autumn sun.
    .... sit still ...like glacial stones ...

    The colours of the land...
    ...roan...ochre ..lilac bands...
    Rise wild and floating...scented
    But we are numb to it.

    Your words like angry onions brought a tear
    But now my eyes are dry.

    I stare at
    Timber roofs..and candied lemon peel
    A bowl of rosy medlars...eggs
    A parrot stuffed with seeds.

    A wasp is at the fruit
    Sweet peaches ...melons
    Between us ...silence..
    Biting and unbroken.

    The wine...
    It tastes of quince slicing at the tongue
    Your tongue had sliced
    And so had mine.
    No going back.

    Old man spits out an olive stone
    No Olive Branch for us..

    We leave the rustic table.

    The parting came quite easily
    New days were waiting
    On another shore
    New dawns not so far away.

    That village old and slumberous
    Lives on without fiesta.
