The Waiter (2004)
It is a good thing that life is not as serious as it seems to a waiter. --Don Herold

The WaiterAttentive to the water levelIn each glass, he followsHis cues, the spotless glovesAnd circumspect attire For his tux. stoic impassivityHis most refined graceWhen in service to his betters.He moves without emotion,Guiding flickers of candlelightAs if hangliding among stars, and waitsFor shadows of overheard conversationTo envelop the four-course dinnerWith murmurs comforting and nostalgicAs a conductor's military baton.He belongs to the past, antiquedAnd polished like refined silverwareArrayed in enigmatic positionsOn the linen, pleased with himselfOnly when no longer himself,But indifferent as wooden corkscrewsHanging next to garlic cloves.Waiting is such temptation, hopefulThat nothing will call attentionTo his hovering humility, he lovesExpectation more than resolution,Deference more than delight, yetKnows that his greatest complimentIs being distinguished yet never distinct.[Disposable Poem February 17, 2008]Dr. Mike
