not a second thought was given


breakfast is an important favorite

maybe that’s cliché ,but six am is way too early

minus twelve degrees is too damn cold

not to have fuel for his body, peace of mind

or at least a cup of coffee

the least that could be done was drive further down the road

where smiles were still seduced by golden arches

mcmuffins and hash browns taste like heaven

though the coffee still tastes like battery acid

receiving the warmest smile and sincere blessings from God

as his “work for food sign” was used as a seat for at least a minute or so
