Last Time at the Carnegie Deli

Jack Gilford is dead
despite the fact
that he seems to be dining
right next to me.

Perhaps it is his son?
Perhaps I’ve gone on too many forums lately
and think myself informed
but in reality,
I simply don’t know Jack?

Perhaps I should finish my meal
and let Mister Gilford
dine in peace.
But instead of that
I decide to stare at him
from the corner of my eyes
and study him carefully
in case he does anything funny.

And if he does,
rest assured,
his waiter will hear something about it.
