I've put a bowl of apples......in the middle of our table.

The other day when we went to that 'crappy little buffet' I adore, for dinner....
I cracked my cookie open, and it was empty.


I laughed, as the flesh crawled beneath my skin.

Benjamin hailed the waitress...
asked for a cookie with a fortune.
Charmed our little Miss, with that sparkle in his eye.

She brought two more.
I cracked the second open....it was about money.
As I crumbled it in my hand, Ben told me--that not to eat the cookie was bad luck.

I told him: Third one's the charm.
Cracked the last cookie in my fist.

Inside it read: This is a prosperous time in life for you.

Apples on the table.
I almost bought FLOWERS at the store tonight....
But we are poor right now...apples can be eaten...
with the luncheon meats and cheeses and 9 grain bread in my hands....

I had left home quickly, trying to make it better with a trip to the store.
I came back with food and beer and.....apples.

He told me he was leaving.

I poured them into the bowl after he was gone.
Carefully piled the photos he had left on the table into a stack and put them away.

Dug through my big-black-bag and found my third fortune.
Rested it amongst the forbidden fruit.

(So god's unicorn was named Gary???
That's my Father's name.)

*sighs and laughs*

So many tables, in this house.....
and we are still using the one from my little flat?

*adjusts the bowl, moves an apple or two*

I'm no home maker.
But I set a mean fine table.

Tables are not about food.
They are about sustenance.

You can eat off the floor.

A table is where you come together.

A table is about love......

*bites into an apple*

And love is about sacrifice.


There is much learning ahead.
