The Omelet

Day 30 of NAPWRIMO. At last! the End!!! I did it, 30 poems in 30 days. Write about your Muse. Lol. One of my many muses is food.

The Omelet
“The way you make an omelet reveals your character.” Anthony Bourdain

Sitting at Waffle House
on a grey Monday morning,
I had called into work because
it was too much effort.
The omelet was cooked quickly,
slightly brown on the outside and dry.
I ate it anyway because I was hungry.
I left a nice tip because I was grateful –
The cook showed up for his job.
more than I did that grey Monday.
