prompted by: painting Dinner Party by Nicole Eisenman for Express it in Eight Challenge
|Masks of cheer adorn their faces
as their world is washed in wine.
Each, dreaming of other places
relating tales of another time.
Salutations to their mundane lives
the clink of glasses echos 'round.
Behind their masks, exist more lies
so in libations do they drown.
