While you were absent in the lavatory

While you were absent in the lavatory
There came a negro with broad flat eyes
Bringing a dish with oranges and bananas
And another brought coffee and cigars.
I was restless, my dear, and a little unhappy
Needing your wide mouth opposite me.
I hung suspended on the finger-bowl
Until a white rabbit hopped beneath the table
Twitching his nose toward the crumbs.
