For 2015's National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), Troy's Work Table is writing thirty poems in thirty days.



They promised us
a rich feast.

For throats that
can barely swallow—

well-strained wine
mature wine

well-strained soup
marrowed soup

food that is feast
not death.

This final meal

such that it is
not a last supper.

Soon: a hand
that cannot raise

a spoon may
do so once more.
