Little Deli Donna’s


It seems as if some quaint

European cafe had been dropped

into the middle of a little Hoosier town.


The beige plaster walls,

Checkered table cloth

and green painted siding

invite them into a wondrous

little tea room, in an idyllic village,

or a bistro in rural France.


As I sit and eat my All-American meal

my mind takes flight to another world.

My mind goes off to some foreign land,

a squeeze box playing while young lovers

walk along exchanging dreamy glances.


What was the name

of that little café?
