A lunch, just a lunch,
Or so, one thought.
No longer as simple as it sounds.
Like before no more.
To ask or not to ask?
To eat or not to eat?
A duo, a trio, a quartet or solo?
A duo invites talk, a trio too much of a click, a quartet but that's just a fraction of a whole.
Much thought (full and less) goes into it.
One's absence or presence speaks volume, much volume.
