My Poetry

seems like ages now
been bent over this hot stove

order up!

the menu hasn’t changed
since who knows when
so i guess it’s a lot like me

order up!

they say there’s a strength in keeping to the old ways

all i know
is there ain’t no pause
when that lunch crowd comes around

  1. I can so relate to this direct poem with so many layers. I worked my way through college waiting tables in various restaurants and I remember the cooks behind the counter and was glad to be out on the floor having conversations with the customers. Your comment, though, on how this feels like the election, I can certainly relate to that too. Just a few hours more now…
