Out to lunch, or: Chewing the fat

A limerick

Chewing the fat on our date left me with a hunch:
I bit my tongue but reasoned: 'This gal's out to lunch.'
Convinced there must be some mistake,
She ate... then couldn't find her cake!
I swallowed, for I'd bitten off more than a man could munch.

d’Verse poetics prompt: At the restaurant…

Today at d’Verse, poets were encouraged to write poems of any style about a restaurant.

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
