eating Vienna sausages

straight from the can

using a plastic fork

to extract the links.


A can of Dos Equi beer

will wash them down;

perhaps a second can

to serve as dessert.


It’s a cool winter noon

with a partly cloudy sky

letting rays of sunshine

hint the coming Spring


Can’t call it

a lunch for kings or champions

but it’s sustenance

and I’ll live another day.
