Lunch with Carole

by Ken W Simpson

My niece and I
indulge our taste
for food, wine
and conversation
flavouring each morsel
with the right ingredients
for a gastronomic
and philosophical ramble
themes of mutual interest
to relish and digest
and even criticise
friends and family
with scandals to revive
dramas to relive
politicians to pillory
religion to rubbish
nostalgically reminiscing
although not always agreeing
but happily conceding
while savouring the pleasure
of our propinquity together.
