Tom’s Diner

photo by Sylvia taken at Tom’s Diner in Dormont, Pennsylvania

(my little version i was thinking about
a couple Sunday mornings ago at Tom’s Diner)

i was sitting
in the morning
at the diner
on the corner

i was thinking
of the years
that passed by
steadily and still

the smells of
fresh brewed coffee
made me close
my eyes and wonder

where my art school
dreams have drifted…

an homage to Suzanne Vega and her song Tom’s Diner, 1981
