Robert Demaree- Three Poems


Cold Cuts

In the deli line:
Lebanon bologna, please,
Half-pound, sliced quite thin.
The man in line next to me
Says, “I love Lebanese food.”

Waiting Room

Morning TV shows:
The only people who watch:
Customers waiting
At the Chevrolet dealer:
An oil change, Steve Harvey next.

Calm Water

A cloudy Sunday,
No power boats on the pond:
Three generations
Kayaking single-file:
Paddles rotate like windmills.
