A talk with Diners.

Eh eclectic ensemble                      Eh player!                                         Eh soothsayer!

Of five!                                                  Playing to soothe                           Flanked by lovely ladies,

Despite your cuddle,                      Bluer                                                    Delving deeper,

I’ve                                                         Emotions in smooth,                    as four eyes stare expectantly

Trouble merging your                    Blue melody,                                   Color

Thoughts-                                            Your lute does hold                     their futures with hues

United only in grandeur;               Notes holy,                                     Milder,

Sub-plots-                                            Pitches superbly controlled    more alive than blues

Drowned in degrees of                    if only                                                if only

Emotive pain.                                     You’d play it for yourself          fortune colored their present.
