Fat Bottom Girl Said What

When my ass talks, people listen.

The Old Neighborhood

my heart is the

neighborhood tavern

the diner down the street

dingy but inviting

unpretentious

there for as long as you can remember

the booths with cracked vinyl

the formica tabletops worn from resting forearms and elbows

the stool at the end of the bar

where the wood is polished from years of wear and marked by cigarette burns

but you are only interested in

the new tapas place down the street

which will be closed before the year is up

  1. Nostalgia comes to us with age! Lovely imagery, I wouldn’t thank you for a visit to that new tapas place.

  2. You nailed it. I love old neighborhood places like that.

  3. I love the imagery… very vivid in your descriptions even in just a few simple words.
