The Disputants

Upon the table in their bowl
In violent disarray
Of yellow sprays, green spikes
Of leaves, red pointed petals
And curled heads of blue
And white among the litter
Of the forks and crumbs and plates
The flowers remain composed.
Coolly their colloquy continues
Above the coffee and loud talk
Grown frail as vaudeville.
