Poetry Challenge Day 310 (Wed Aug 10)
I pulled into a breakfast joint
in bumfuck Louisiana.
I was hungry.
I ordered one of everything…
I didn’t care that I was blowing
my entire day’s food budget on breakfast.
The food came out
and the cashier handed it to me.
We stared at each other for the longest time
and I finally said, “how much?”
She looked a me like I was stupid and said:
“The Chef feeds every cyclists that comes thru here…”
Best breakfast with a side of humble pie I have ever had.
