To my friends eating supper — Wael

I met them eating supper

Look at me, for a moment, did they
And no one returned my greeting

The hands, went back, handling the spoons 
    in their dish of soup

Stare in the bowl, did I

Damn you,
    Beware, My blood!
    I yelled

Care not did they
The hands handling the spoons 
And licking the blood were the lips
