Charity Dinner

A poem

Midjourney art created by the author

We are all heroes for cleaning up the kitchen
after a Sunday garden party; toss the limes
from empty gin and tonics, dump the ice

that chilled the Pinot Grigio, scrape off
the melted wet charcuterie board
of Spanish cheese and homegrown wildflowers.
