An Embarrassment


The vacant eyes, a sullen countenance,
a minimalist solicitation,
forces an embarrassment.

Her face is impassive. I sit quietly.
She hurries to the pantry.
Sticks around for a while.

Places the refreshments and drink
before me. The gestures are
one of indifference.

I gift her a diamond ring. Turning back
I meet her gaze which I return,
The refreshments lie untouched.
