Poetry #454
(published October 1, 2009)
Concession Feast
by Stacey S. Dye
No candles dance in celebration.
Paper plates are the china du jour.
Only a silver platter sits in
the center of the table.

In all these years, you chose this
evening to come home on time.
I hear your key assault the lock.
You must have sensed the struggle

was over. I finally bled out.
Gorge yourself on my power
as if it were a fine cut of meat.
There will be no leftovers tonight.

Stacey S. Dye's work has been featured in the Camroc Press Review, among other venues. She's also written radio and television copy for three decades and does voice overs on local cable TV.
