Everyone is welcome

park donkeys at the door

if you want to be happy

tell him where it hurts

naked and in silence

prepare to dine on dreams

that taste like duck soup

bring a little something

chardonnay or Beaujolais will do

be inspired but mannerly

napkin on your lap

don’t eat with your hands

or chew with your mouth open

have a crisp Eden apple

you can eat it with the skin on

emptiness cannot be filled

so don’t make him frown

bring an umbrella

you never know when

it’s going to rain

maybe for a very long time
