dinner

Table for Two

glow

Mexican melodies

Mixed with knives and forks

Against white porcelain plates

As leftover sun makes its way

Into the room where we sit

Spice and salt

And sipping sangria

Watching resting candles

On wooden tabletops

Our flame flickers the fastest

Illuminating our

Intertwined hands

Three glasses in and

We’re feeling warm and sweet

Talking loudly

And enjoying village atmosphere

I want to stand up

And sway, unsure

If it’s the wine

Or the bliss of

Having you with me

They always say,

“It takes two to tango”

And as you let me

Grab your hand and

Try to keep a tempo

I realize it only takes one

To make a soul dance

Gwynedd Valley

Cosmetic twinkle lights

Strung awkwardly overhead of

A bright yellow door

With inviting blues and pressed linen cloth

A vacant waiting room

Call over a table for two

Set up cheap glassware and,

Emerald napkins

A spectacle for passengers
