"Your life is your art." Keri Smith

My life is a dinner table
the past; empty glasses
the present; those semi-full plates,
filled with a bountiful feast
the future; the unturned silverware,
ready to be used, unsure of which to decide upon

pulls the white cloth from the table,
that has sheltered you for so long

There you are,
beneath the table

You were there all along.
