If you write a few words-
even half a sentence-
like half a sandwich
like the soup and half a sandwich deal
at Jojo’s restaurant
you can find a
glimmer of hope in between the words
like lettuce between the tomato and
the cheese
in the sandwich.
You don’t always find
the essence of our fathers
or god
or the hope diamond
but you might find a sardine like
like mustard or pickles,
not so much the chicken or the beef,
but enough to let you know
lunch was served.
