serving tray etiquette and the fine art of sushi preparation

Blake in a pawn shop






soft bland gobs of
inconsistency
goop with fabulous
dipping sauces
upscale nutritional
fish egg equivalent of
chips & dip more
expensive no less
tragic

never excessively
revealing stealing glances
and occasional fallen
fish egg squirming
around in the cleavage
scowling divas need
not enter the exceptional
charred remains of the less
fortunate have you seen my
whipping post darling

wits skinny dipping in
chablis and rosé
dull epithets crawl from
ruins of sparkling beverages
enhanced by chandelier
conversations of shi tzus
and cadillacs
ribbons in a poodle's ear
leveraging a pool man
crab dip gives way to
hobnail boot waltzes
tap shoe maidens
get em while they're
hot

maid in the linen
closet butler in the iron
maiden rats in the
pantry doilies all in
place

eaters of sushi schlepped
to starvation farms
ranches actually where they
will be bred and grown as
soft bland gobs of
inconsistency
goop with fabulous
dipping sauces
pirhana chow useful in
the final end

now if you will cut
the check i'll be on my
way
