Is it there
where The One
draws delight in taking food?

   …in salivary glands
   oozing in anticipation?

   …in nostrils where waves
   of coffee aroma break?

   …in taste buds
   dancing in appreciation?

   …where time takes its time,
   slows to savor?

   …in the alchemy of ease
   as friends gather

   …and eyes embrace
   companions at table?
