The Dinner Party

Imagine a dinner party, 
say a day and a half before it happens

sweep the parlour
set the ebony candlesticks

the glow glitter from every speck that shines

the chatter will be your grout
the glue on which you’ll lay the pieces
the patterns and shapes
that go someway
to make up the tesserae,
mosaic of your day.

      Thanks for reading, Nick.
