Good Intentions Snap Like Yesterday's Breadstick


Eight sets of dinner plates form a stupa
rising from the sink.  These seven legs
of ham were harvested from a couple of pigs.
Like art hung from fridge magnets:  six ribbons of demerit.

Five quads eye each other with suspicion over dinner.

A four course banquet to commemorate the kitchen fire
goes wrong as the chef is reduced to cinders.  Three
marbled steaks and a two fingered Heimlich will satiate
Nina's appetite.  One pot of boiling water clarifies things
for the lobster.
