Chinese for Breakfast

The two white clad men are always smiling

in the bakery window when I walk past them

at five o’ clock in the morning

they must be friends, joking as they bake the bread

and roll the croissants into crescents

they must be good, gentle men


My belly is already complaining

about the chinese food I rolled out of bed and ate

or else I’d walk right in and order something

Instead, I think about what i’m wearing

I want to look good tonight for the party in Boston
