Multitude of Inconsequence

Cutlery sparkling on the table
Intricate white-on-white pattern of the linen
Vivid colours of the abstract on the wall
Dazzling smile of the server
Spots on the silky black of my dress
Scuffed tops of my shoes
Rays of the sun glinting off the glass
Flashing blue light of the phone
The silver dial of your watch on
strong wrists peeking
through the cuffs of your shirt
Lean fingers playing with the knife

A multitude of inconsequence
catches my eyes
in the instant
they avoid yours
