An Occurrence at the Dining Facility

my roommate belched 
an act 
he could not help
and out

across the table

atop a silver saltshaker

sat his breaded veal

just a sliver of the meal



for everyone to see

his girlfriend shrieked

i could not speak

he paused

to gain his breath

but out came more

like chocolate milk

it poured across his tray

with bits of stuffing

and gravy

then nothing

but nicely formed

like puddles on his plate

when suddenly there

repelling from his chin

he appeared to salivate

and eyelids

at half-mast

he seemed to barely utter

though straining

i surmise

his request

was for the butter
