There are five accents
three types of beer
and at least four conversations at my table,
we eat nachos and drink.
Mike tells us about the Huskies chances this season.
Betsy explains how she became interested in plate tectonics.
Iain, Susie and Sarah talk about how to pronounce Edinburgh.
Aaron is just happy to have a real IPA again.
I have half an eye on a baseball game
while Lucas thinks of funny ways to ask for a menu.
We’re a large group,
polite and tip well.
It may not be heaven
but nights like these
make me proud
to be part of the Church.
