Long Time Passing

Where have all the Tad’s Steaks gone?
We went there sometimes
after school
for a meal of meat
we could well afford.
I would try to get everyone to go
far more often
than they seemed to want.

Perhaps my friend group
represented the general disinterest
in the steakhouse chain.
Perhaps that is why
cheap steak is no longer available in midtown.
Perhaps Tad’s is part of a bygone age
like my high school
and my former waistline.
It is indeed strange
how, as meals got more expensive,
I became capable
of consuming many more of them.

In any case,
my trips to Tad’s Steak restaurants
are few and far between
just as Tad’s themselves are.
