Breakfast Served All Day
Deborah Hauser

Like a train car derailed
and forgotten
beside the busy highway
pink neon splashes
off tin walls
onto asphalt road.
You can order breakfast
any time, day or night.
Hot coffee with refills
and a new day begins.

Sounds like the Louie's Dale Diner Bronx, NY. Best in the world, if you live here.

This poem is metaphorically out of this world; it completely blew me away--a very subtle life lesson.
