Sandwich

Share


Jet lagged, ordered toasted cheese sandwich
After impatient wait servile English asked
Toast Bread?
No.  A toasted cheese sandwich please!
Eyes drooping, finally served withered lettuce, ham and cheese
wedged between two slices toasted bread
no warming steam, lively crunch or soothing ooze
As cold as the Hauptbahnhof crush
Workers, residents, travelers,
a sandwiched population
variegated – no single permutation
