Before the Check is Presented at the Olive Garden

Alright!  Finally posting something again.  This is a little more playful, but it's halfway based on a real experience.  I wanted to try and get as much odd imagery into the poem as I could, and I think I succeeded.  At any rate, hope you enjoy!  :)

Before the Check is Presented at the Olive Garden

Our conversation was like
A headache the size
Of a moose -- punch-drunk
Vocab, hacked throats,
Tongues bitten to the nub.

I sawed through my parmesan chicken
Splattered with red
As his mouth opened and closed
Like a stupid "caw"-less seagull
Until his saucy lips wrapped
Around a lemonade straw and
Sucked -- "schhllllp."

Then his feet touched mine
And slithered up, twining around
My mousy legs until I couldn't
Breathe.  His hand gripped my knee
Until it dissolved into me the way
Mercury seeps into pores.

"Do you need any help?"
The wavy-haired waiter asked.
Tongueless, all I could do was nod.
Allasso, Volume 2: Saudade is now out!  Feel free to check it out ^_^

Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.
