Fine Dining

By Abrahim Harb
 
I.
France:
a bottle of sweet bordeaux
& hunk of brie,
or perhaps
merlot
& a rare steak;
instead I choose,
a prepackaged salad


II.
London:
bergamont tea
& crumpets,
then off to a pub, ordering
fish and chips
& carmel wheat bottle brewed beer;
Instead I choose
A frozen dinner with root beer.


III.
All you wish to do is travel abroad
& eat fine cuisine;
as I microwave my Chinese leftovers
& watch a movie.


IV.
Maybe you
and i,
can be a sweet gelato,
later on in life.
