Salmon Poetry

Dinner with her ex

Peadar O'Donoghue

New-fangled fancy chilli-vinegar bottles, 
I have to say in my defence,
my absolutely necessarily, 
absolutely completely deliciously,
rat-arsed defence, 
can - almost, in a certain seductive light I swear,
be virtually visually indistinguishable from red wine.
But try telling that amid his histrionic spurting, gagging, 
the frantic back-slapping, ruined tablecloth, her
'I'll deal with you later' glancing glares, and me
wondering when I'll be sufficiently sober to care.
