Tablewary

Andrew Sullivan admonishes, "no dessert until you eat your plate, so I took him at his word:

A Solid Meal

I ate my whole bowl of soup,

but I found the bowl rather hard.

I savored the seafood platter,

but had trouble digesting each shard.

The deep-dish dessert

punched a hole in my shirt,

and that pot of herbal tea

is afloat inside of me.

Yes, all of your dishes

are truly delicious,

but I think, for today,

I’ve had quite enough clay.
