Steenways Street

this time the missus and I went to a formal dinner with the scions
and as soon as we entered the parlour all eyes were upon us
as if our wide smiles and equanimity was something new on the scene
the way this antiquated crowd went into a panic as we took our seats at the ZinX table on a dais
whispers filling the air as if it we’d caused some kind of public scandal
like she was a portrait of Madame Vigée-Lebrun showing her teeth
and I was Daniel entering the lion’s den with no security
