How To Eat Alone

When he was in college in Boston

He did a lot of things on his own

Dinners in the cafeteria

Middle East rock shows

Sometimes he felt self conscious

and worried that he’d run into someone he knew

As he got older he started realizing there were fates worse than eating alone

Some bashful folks eat by themselves in their cars under the brutal summer sun

Rather than sit all by their lonesome in a shop

They suffer in Toyotas during their lunch hours

roast beef sandwiches on the dash

Sweaty workshirts

Poor schmucks

They never learned how to eat alone.
