Poetry Breakfast

Beginning March 20th, 2016 Poetry Breakfast will once again serve a little poetic nourishment every morning. Start your day with our new expanded menu. Poems, of course, are our specialty. But we will also be serving a fuller menu that includes poetry related creative non-fiction such as letters to and from poets, essays on poetry, and anything else that might feed a poet and poetry lover’s soul.

Pillow Talk
by J.P. Plunkett

We’re always searching for him,
Yet have we ever considered
that he doesn’t want to be found?
You’ll catch glimpses of him down by the beach
or at the mall. Maybe you’ll see him at the museum.
He has a dog now, oddly, red and white tail peeking out behind walls.
He’s hard to find too.
I saw him a little bit when I was skiing,
but I got distracted and ran into a tree.
Why Waldo?
Why are you so hard to find?

Different
by J.P. Plunkett

You tried so hard but it just wasn’t enough
Your green leaves, plastic under
The artificial sunlight.
Your soil, just rocks.
You wish just to be stronger.
You feel abandoned because I
Never took care of you.
I didn’t think I needed to.
You wave in the wind, provided by the ceiling fan,
To all your friends outside.
They don’t wave back though cause you are different.
My fake plant died,
Because I did not pretend to water it.
