dog & bone sandwich shop

i came  to this

sandwich shop

to have the right atmosphere

to relax

to think about my life,

and write a few poems

 

i order a turkey and cheese sandwich

I take a few bites

and put a few words on napkins

 

it’s  cold

the words won’t flow

 

no one else is eating

it’s a sad place to be

i leave my sandwich half eaten

and go home

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
