    Morrisons's 1968 by Rick Campbell

    In the Riviera Beach black morning
    where the secret cold is hidden
    from tourists, where only workers
    and fishermen on an early mackerel tide
    know freezing is a South Florida word,
    a 17 year old boy walks to the back door
    of Morrison's Cafeteria. Rats scatter
    as he mumbles past bloody fryer boxes
    and through the greasy backdoor smell.
    He hits the lights at the breaker box,
    stumbles to the bathroom for starched
    white work pants. Ten more minutes
    he figures he can steal,
    so he sits on the toilet seat and leans his head
    on the sticky wall. Chef Narville bangs
    the door as he walks down the hall
    to change in the black bathroom.
    Saturday begins. This is it.
    In another world the sun will rise
    over the sea. Lovers and drunks sleep
    in the sand. His girlfriend is wrapped
    in blankets, home. Her touch
    still on his hands, but even that
    won't save him, so he struggles out
    to the stockroom. One more day, he thinks.
