Formica And Chrome

peppermint pole spirals

three chairs
no waiting"

"who's next?"

doesn't matter
the old guys like hanging around

politicians to tear up
wagers to concoct
old stories to embellish
jokes to repeat
even some gossip now and then
and obituaries
lots of them
bragging rights
tall tales
and damned lies

no woes though
men don't "talk"

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


thanks...glad you could sense an atmosphere

It all depends on which side of the head, the hair is parted. ;-)


p.s. love the title which gave no clue about the poem; I was thinking cars or diners,
