Eggs and sausage and a side of toast
coffee and a roll, hash browns over easy
chile in a bowl with burgers and fries
what kind of pie?

In a graveyard charade, a late shift masquerade
2 for a quarter, dime for a dance
with Woolworth rhinestone diamond earrings,
and a sideway's glance
and now the register rings
and now the waitress sings

Eggs & Sausage (In A Cadillac With Susan Michelson)~ Tom Waits
