Sally’s Alley

Written for:  Life After Fifty-
              Sadje's "What Do You See?"
              (luna's on line)

Smokers come to 
Sally's Alley, where
tables are set wide
apart, nondescript 
white ashtrays on
each.  A rustic sea-
side restaurant of
limited menu choices
making decisions 
easier.  Regulars
know that the little
drawer inside their
table contains matches,
bottle opener, and dessert
list for that evening.
By the way, bring your
own bottle.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Simple yet effective poem! You’ve described a retreat for people who want to enjoy their smoking in peace. Thanks a lot for joining in.
