David Rakoff's 'Wedding Toast' Poem from This American Life Nathan, at one of the outlying tables,his feet tangled up in the disc jockey's cables,surveyed the room as unseen as a ghost,while he mulled over what he might say for his toast.That the couple had asked him for this benediction,seemed at odds with them parking him here by the kitchen.
