The Majestic Diner


Route 17 cutting through the New Jersey suburbs toward Manhattan was bumper to bumper by seven yesterday morning, with clutches of commuters at bus shelters along the way expectantly watching for their transportation. When I stopped for breakfast, a humble ingredient in the omelet led to larger thoughts of first romances long forgotten in a work-weary world. 

The Majestic Diner

Route 17, Ramsey, NJ, Monday, 7:04 A. M.

Lox, scallions, mascarpone, mascarpone

the enchantment of the omelet

touch of tooth in first kiss

coffee’s tang the pewter taste

of orthodontics colliding

amidst the osculation

drop of jam on buttered English

and hi-ho hi-ho once more
