Remnants of food
Some spillage
on the wooden table
hands undecided
over the plate;
Shimmering soup
like congealed blood
and some memories
discussed desultorily
over a dinner with family
meeting after a decade
for remembering someone
they had long forgotten---
rituals, unnecessary!
And then---long silences
And troubling solitude.
