ISSUE 4: SUMMER 2016 / POETRY

[poem #1] by Mike Meraz

BY MIKE MERAZ

While
Helping a
Customer
I stare at a girl
Off in the
Distance
Buying a
Box of
Cereal

She is beautiful
And curvy
And
Young

I dream of
Cruise ships
And walks on
The beach

As the customer
Orders a
Turkey
Sandwich
On
Sourdough

No onions
Extra
Pickles.
