I do remember being politely declined as a boyfriend any more, but then we watched television, no politics. And I still went out with her and her mate for a while.
Can't remember being disassembled over dinner, but those drama scenes on TV and film always make me cringe when they are set in a public arena. :-)
a cat picking
at discarded fast food
this night without you
filling with the hum
of regular rain

I like how this can be read in different ways – a sense of a damn good meal, and/or a good debate, or the air cleared, or the more troubling relentless going over of something. And is it the last as in previous, or the last as in the last ever. Multi layered and enjoyable.
