For Dinner

This is my perfect meal:

A bag of red pistachios

A whole Jewish salami

A loaf of seeded rye bread sliced

A six-pack of cream soda.

For dessert

A package of Mallomars.

I will need a knife to cut the salami

And several napkins.

I don’t want to share my meal with anyone

Or have to talk.

I want to sit on the bed surrounded by my food

With the television playing My Little Margie,

One of the great forgotten sitcoms of all time.

And I want to eat and wax nostalgic until midnight.
