Poetry - Friday Night

Published on 27 April 2023 at 19:39

A young girl with a small black crop top, 

On the phone, saying she’ll be somewhere soon

“One slice of pepperoni”

A couple in oversized sweaters 

Hugging one another 

To keep warm

“One full veggie pie please”  

Sauce drips down the cheeks 

Of a shaggy-haired boy

As his feet rest on a skateboard,

Gathered at a table full of friends 

“Another round would be great, thanks” 

An aroma fills the air, maybe the pizza 

Or maybe, the joy from

everyone’s different walks of life 

Who could be sad at a pizza shop at 1am?
