They bring a second flute

For me and my books;

It’s easy to ignore

All those looks

At a woman of a certain age

Drinking pink champagne

In the middle of a Saturday.
I sent out a call to a few

Of my social circle

Busy with husbands, kids,

Or other things—

So I’ll happily while

Away the time alone

Again today.
