easter dinner – April 16


the family feast gone,

more food than

possible because

each brought, made


more than asked


and consumed, ate,

took, less than



but the conversation

said hello, and little

voices played around

the table feet and

loved up the dog and



so that there was plenty

to send home, more than



from the five loaves

and two fishes.
