Lunch Date With Dates -MahJ
Yesterday, I had a date with dates
A lunch date with me, myself and I
And I ate:
Ridged siracha honey chips from Big Lots
And a travel packet of big juicy dates from Home Goods.
They were so good!
I started talking to them.
Learned where they came from
Told them I’m a Brooklynite; from the hood
Smiled and continued to eat them slowly
Disclosed to them, how I was a little under the weather and somewhat lonely.
They felt the opposite
Always packed in their space together
No time to be an individual date...
To be prized and savored solo
On an appreciated plate.
Since the beginning of time, they were stuck together
On the same damn bush
Surrounded by the same overshadowing trees
I frowned, told them I understood and that I was so sorry.
They said, “it’s fine. It is what it is”.
I then, grabbed the last two and stopped at my lips
As if about to kiss them;
I thanked them for their time...
“Thank you for keeping me company with your squishy texture, rich taste, wrinkled faces and flavor sublime.”
Once all the food was eaten
I realized my lucky fate.
I kind of, just had
An unofficial date; a light healthy lunch date with dates!
