The Social House

An experience:
Cutely quaint. The “Social House.”
An actual house.

Food/Expresso served.
3 solo diners. 3 rooms.
Not social. Alone.

One wants gluten-free!
A deconstructed bagel,
She orders awkward.

One studies. Books sprawled.
One’s sold on detailed decor
Airy. Homey. Crisp

Table-painted blooms.
Brown cushioned reception chairs.
Matching baroque rugs.

Hot mint medley tea.
Brunch curry & “L-shaped” tots.
Slow chew. Savors tastes.

Maybe I’ll return,
this evening for live music.
See if it’s social,
