A Gentleman's Breakfast through Time

A Gentleman's Breakfast through Time

A Poem by emptyinkwell
"

A vintage soul against the present-day scene.

"
Hot coffee, dark roast, black
And an order of bacon and eggs, extra bacon, extra crispy
Thank you, good day.

Ma'am I know the sign says no smoking
But I'm out here on the patio
All alone
May I light one cigar?

The bacon is great, thank you.
Do you serve Scotch at this time of day?
I could really use a Johnnie Walker Double Black.

Where can I get a newspaper?
I don't care particularly for politics
I just want to see the funnies.

Here stupid pigeon, have the damn bacon.

Where did I put my sunglasses?
And why can't I find my parasol today?

Yes, yes, Tokyo, I'll Skype you in.

Thanks for the review! I intended for this to be kind of like an ironic film noir. My hope was that .. read more
