An Option (Day 741)

pushing food around their plates   
passing conversation around 
their table   reactions flared and faded   
the unthinkable was real   criminal 
dismissive  disdainful  wait—we choose 
to carry them, don't we?   silence  
unspoken  decisions were made 
one nodded  another smiled  an option
arose  a balance shifted  this wasn’t 
just lunch  it felt more like revolution
