Dining Out

We went out to dine on this past Sunday
To a drive-in where we would eat in the truck
That is the guarded way to safely play
Settled in the last space, next to the muck
in the dumpster, by the scent I'm struck

When I rolled down the window, pressed the red
button, I told my husband we need to move
to get away from this stench, so we fled
Next door to, well, let's see if you approve
Veterinary Clinic, did the stench improve?

Windows up, facing the busy highway
Enjoyed dining out in nice fall air
Watching cars and trucks, wispy clouds, the array
Autumn's display, an ebony crow where?
In a brown tree, flies away with flair

Thanks for sharing this, making me visualize how dining out is fun in your place. In our country, "rigorous" social/physical distancing is practiced in dining out; thus, we are still far apart when we dine out. God bless you.

- Everything has to be done differently now ... sitting in the car to eat ... not exactly comfortable ... but, you at least not have to cook - A great picture of "Dining Out in 2020" - Good luck in the contest :) - Have a lovely day, Sara :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

LOve this Sara, i've read a lot of your poetry, loved them all, but this, a little different, you take me there, to a scene of which i can relate too, although thousands of miles away, everything there seems to be the same as here in western australia..

This damnable virus affects almost every aspect of our lives, and your poem mirrors the misery that so many people experience right now - I even wonder if the 'normal' we all once new will ever be seen again - it's like we're being taken over by a new world order. A fine write Sara. Bill

Hello Sara Kendrick, I miss dining out in a truck. My husband and I did this often. Now just a memory. Enjoy your day my friend. So nice to meet you. Welcome to Poetry soup.
