I love this, Chris. I smiled throughout and my mouth watered simultaneously. What I love is making the "one of stature age and history" just one of us sitting right there across the table, sloppy, and laughing. To some this might seem almost sacrilegious, but to me, it is precious and intimate. With how many could we be so unceremonious, messy, and just plain sloppy? Also, these lines: "red with tomato sauce
dripping down our faces / while discussing the ridiculousness of dogma" lead to a whole other possibility for discussing and essay writing. But I like the sentiment. Dogma has never been one of my favorite things or words. In fact, the word itself could be the title of a poem with which I could have some fun. Thanks for this, my friend.
