N
There was a meeting.
They had an agenda.
N
It was time to talk
about loving a man
N
in the supermarket,
how that might
N
affect sales of
imported candy
N
and levels of light
in the produce.
N
It was the best meeting
they’d ever had.
N
Everyone wanted it
to last forever, like
N
it had seemed April
was going to last year
N
or was it the year
before that. People
N
at the meeting had
a lot in common.
N
Not only were they
all employed by
N
the same company,
but also most of them
N
drove to the meeting
in a car, sometimes
N
the same car, so
there was barely
N
a meter between them.
They could all vote
N
and they could all hold forth
on the beauty and danger
N
of poisonous berries.
It was a perfect meeting.
N
They each had one blue eye
and two green ones.
