when we arrived

when we arrived at the castle
the scene was set for a great feast

a banqueting table had been set with silver
only our host was absent

we raised glasses to each other
as well as to absent friends
before settling down to food
that crumbled into dust
in our mouths

we looked at each other in horror
as it suddenly dawned upon us
what had happened
