and in the morning I wanted eggs.
Sandwiches are different these days.
They used to be turkey and brie on baguette.
Tuna or egg salad with mayo on toasted white bread.
Now it’s sprouts, avocado, tomatoes, and onions,
or grilled eggplant, zucchini, butternut squash, and portabellas
on sprouted wheat berry bread.
I used to wind down with pinot noir and wake up
Now I sleep when I’m tired
and wake up when it’s morning.
I’m not saying I don’t miss bacon.
Or ice cream.
But roasted plantains
and mango sorbet aren’t bad.
I’m not saying I don’t miss smoking my pipe
on the roof late at night.
But I’ve got my bike ride along the hudson
when I feel like flying.
