$15.75, Salad And Pizza, Love
A Story Poem by Jim Nasium

$15.75, Salad And Pizza, Love is based on Brautigans 30 Cents, Two
Transfers, Love that you can read at the bottom...



$15.75, Salad And Pizza, Love (X's3)

I:
$15.75, Salad And Pizza, Love

I called the pizza place today
ordered a large salad and some slices
but then
after I heard myself order
I remembered I would be eating
alone...

II:

When the pizza shop delivery boy
knocked on my door, I answered
but what he said
"why is there only one plate on the table today"
made me realize just how alone I am
and I cried...

III:

A large bottle of wine later
in my drunken state
the salad and pizza
found it's way into the trash can
I've lost my desire for food and I want you...

and now Brautigans Poem:
30 Cents, Two Transfers, Love

Thinking hard about you
I got on the bus
and paid 30 cents car fare
and asked the driver for two transfers
before discovering
that I was
alone.

Richard Brautigan
