Today's Menu
by Richard L. Provencher

From his usual squat-spot
Jolly Jones tries hard to consider
today's menu,
enough for at least a bite,
any kind of handout. Perhaps
a coffee at the local diner--

hard to imagine
him not working his corner
by the bus stop, eyes attracting
sympathy, hoping
they'll see his floppy shoes
and second hand taste in clothing.

Aha, another customer.

Richard L. Provencher

Richard enjoys writing poems; many of which have been published in Print and Online. He and his wife, Esther are also co-authors of stories and a print novel. They are "born again" Christians and very busy in their church, Abundant Life Victory International, in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia.
