The Birthday Dinner
Watching them at the table -
bright, unfazed, still new to this unwinding road
straining to hear let alone understand, their generational yatter.
I felt miles from my thirties - like looking through the wrong end of binoculars.
The wine was, a little too honeyed now for my grey nostalgia, &
I settled my fork next to the plate, at least it knows its proper place.
