A Greek Meze

More hummus Emma?
That'd be great
Please pass the tatziki and pita.

I adore this moussaka
I love the feta
A Greek salad would be nothing without.

Do you hear that music?
Fancy a dance?
Yes please, do I have to smash a plate?

Of course you don't
Come, follow me
Just do what I do, let yourself go

More Retzina, or ouzo
What do you fancy?
Cherry brandy is more up my street

Whatever you'd like
But remember the hike
Back down the hill to the hotel


This poem was written for the prompt from the poet companions: "You are sitting at this table. Who are you talking to? What are you saying?". 

The photo is of a place in Texas, but to me it speaks of the Greek island and it is there where this poem is set.
