words about the times of meals

part, first

breakfast:
it is the first of the eatings
of the day of this,
it is the breaking
of the fast

part, one and one half

brunch:
it is an event
of fancy restaurants
and cloth napkins,
couples kissing
over bacon grease

part, second

lunch:
it is the filling of the carnal desires
of the stomach kind
in the middle of the day,
the replenishing
of vital energy
lost in the turmoils
of the work day

part, third

dinner:
it is the end of the eatings
of the day of this,
it is the gathering
of the families,
sitting in union of conversations -
when the day is finished,
the fast begins

epilogue

someone ran over my foot

"not to be rude or anything,
but about how much does your car weigh?"


"oh, about as much as two and half
tons of feathers"


about two and a half tons of feathers,
two and a half tons of feathers,
two and a half tons of feathers,
tons of feathers,
tons of feathers,
tons

How's the foot?
Two tons of feathers ... hmmm ... Two tons ... that's heavy.

I love the first three and a half parts but I'm not sure I understand the epilogue. I must be denser than two and a half tons of feathers :-)
