minus one plus one by ryki zuckerman

minus one plus one

set out two plates
on the table
one for me
one for myself

who is good company
and speaks as much
as i listen

when not savoring 
the savories
or sweetly smiling
over the sweets

who has accompanied me
to so many lands and feasts
over the years
when no one else would

or when there was no one else
to ask to engage
in conversation or dining

let the single lovers
of the world 
in their beloved
who stays true,
who is to me,
