FOR A LATE NIGHT MEAL?

Do I have any doubt,

Sweet sausage and sauerkraut…

Are ideal

For an evening meal,

As long as a breeze is about?

–J.E. Caswell

LATE EVENING HAIKU

LATE EVENING HAIKU

Poet howls away,

Seeing figures in the dark…

Walking toward him!

Luscious ladies lope

Longing eyes luxuriate…

Evening romance glows.

Supper not enough,

Large special sub* with the works…

Salad, meat and bread.

*(NOTE “sub” short for submarine sandwich.)

My relief comes now…

What am I gonna do?

🙂

FISH CAKES AND COLD PIZZA

FISH CAKES AND COLD PIZZA

Gastronomic delights

Fortify my nights…

Catch as catch can

For mortal man,

Whatever comes into sight!

Sampled kitchen leftovers,

Manicotti…over and over…

The overcooked sauce

I considered loss,

But then, I’m a late-night drover.

I took my insulin

And shoveled more food in…

Cold fish cakes and stuff

Were more than enough

To keep me from wearing thin.

Oh yeah, I do have an apple,

Another “cold” food to grapple…

Prob’ly going home,

Under my car dome

While finishing a bottle of SNAPPLE*.

–Jonathan Caswell

* SNAPPLE…an American brand of bottled  and flavored ice tea

LATE NIGHT “PRICE CHOPPER”

LATE NIGHT “PRICE CHOPPER”**

A cute cashier named Ashleigh,

Was very pleasant to me…

I was conflicted

‘Cause my wife insisted

My going out late for coffee!

This Ashleigh had a nice smile

I found worth the extra mile…

Mollified

On the homeward ride,

I really did like her style.

At another store, Stacie’s my friend

Who likes Poetry I send…

Personally,

On each shopping spree

Or on the homeward bend!

Stacie, like me, can’t afford

The Net, plus room and board…

She’s happy to get

Printed ones that

Buoy her spirits up when they are floored.

–Jonathan Caswell

** PRICE CHOPPER is a grocery store chain founded near Schenectady, New York, with stores throughout New York and the New England States.   Many of these (like the two, in different towns, mentioned above) are open 24 hours…for those of us who have to shop after a late 2nd shift…or when one’s wife refuses to live without ground coffee!  🙂
