National Poetry Month: Dinner

by Janelle Fine

A rusty knife and rotten peach
chewed up words at the dinner table
crisp white linen

I saw verbs and nouns
displayed on bone-white China

how they devoured sin
like crunching through glass with teeth
or drinking hot-blooded champagne
I chewed my sandwich slowly

and I remember
I still remember the look on her face
when she walked in

all that was left of me was a torn
and wrinkled piece of skin

This week's poems are from Silhouette: Bold Lines & Voices from Writegirl. You can learn more about Writegirl and the cool things they do here.
