remember

brush canvas close up colors

the ambiguity of stain
a scarlet thread finds its way
onto a bleached white linen
marring its perfection

maunday, a mandate, a command
over dinner
eat this, drink this

I remember the little saltless pillows of cracker
and the fascination of tiny cups of grape juice
take this and remember
Do This in Remembrance of Me
carved in the wooden altar
where the men in somber suits
brought the bright silver trays
to rest

red wine
on white linen
I reach for your glass
