[I can lay it before you]

I can lay it before you
on pristine damask
on rough hewn pine
on plates of porcelain
on paper trays
I can lay it before you
with carafes of wine
or orange sodas
with plastic knives
or sterling flatware
I can lay it before you
but you must dare
raise it to your lips
and pass it in your throat
to where digestive juices
will translate and assimilate
or I am labouring
for flies and worms
