Mag#129 "Mints"

A Dinner Table at Night, 1884, John Singer Sargent
especially after
the apres dinner cafe
he lingers with wet lips
in the red room
he bogarts his lit cigar
she cannot help but fan the flames
with vapid exchange
on the white linen table
she imagines
red walls
conquers all
her only prerequisite
he meets her eyes
her Don Juan
as Cavalier as
 the caviar
so appropriate too
as the conversation
turns to
oysters in the halfshell
no hurry here
as the day laconically ends
at Last Hurrah's
please enjoy fine dining here;
Thank-you Tess for this superb prompt~!!!
