People Who Like Sushi

all of my favorite shows get cancelled
for lack of audience

I ask for non-standard condiments on a sandwich
horseradish, not mayo

if I like it
most don’t

it’s no wonder I sit alone at lunch
peerless at 50 in a college of coeds
and enjoy it

I am not like you
or if I am, you are sitting alone right now
reading
perfectly happy
wishing for a Vienna sausage sandwich

  1. This struck a chord with me. I know the older I get, the happier I am being eccentric. The kind of rich inner life you suggest here helps. Also, I agree on the horseradish - so much better than mayo.
