They Arrived (Day 151)

 
Casually, they arrived, 
perfectly suppressed 
diamonds, and gray 
velvet manners
both attracting
     and repelling
their fellow bon vivants. 
They laughed
      eh-heh eh-heh
and swallowed mouthfuls 
     of champagne 
and as their host told 
another joke and stole
a worried look at
their empty glasses,
he caught the beginnings
     of a yawn 
wriggling at the sides
of her smiling lips.
