Rengay in Frogpond, winter 2009

The Waitress Sings

Billie Dee & Deborah P. Kolodji

outside the café
winter jacarandas
winter sky

the scarf Mother made me
last Christmas

tattered cookbook
a buttered thumbprint
on the biscuit page

old photographs framed
on the wall

bacon pops
in the black iron skillet

fresh crumbs
the waitress sings
as we drink coffee

Frogpond 32.1, 2009

Dedicated to my dear friend
Judy-the-Beauty Forman,
who owns and sings
at the
Big Kitchen,
San Diego, California, USA.

Best comfort-food in town
(any town!) served by community
activist and

Woman of the Year, 2005
