The silver spoon

04 Apr

The silver spoon

Spilling gibberish, drool, and cream

In this morning’s Lobster Bisque

Screamed at him for not

Eating Cheerios in 1% milk

With silverware, or even

A plastic spoon.

(None would have to be polished

Rubbed by servants

And served, to feed

 Your fat reflecting face).

“We are both, growing worthless

In history” fading as it dripped

and slurped from

Puckering lips.

    Is that the spoon the dish ran away with? I like the thought in parentheses: ‘(None would have to be polished / Rubbed by servants / And served, to feed / Your fat reflecting face)’. If that’s what the spoon thinks, what on earth could be on the minds of knives and forks!.

    I liked the first line with the spoon spilling gibberish and drool.

    Wonderful! Your poem begged to be read several times before it would let go of me. Demanding things, these little verses of ours! Real joy to read!

    Inanimate objects need love too; nice gentle rocking of the prompt. I longed for more silverware dialogue.
