Author Bio: I have attended both group and private poetry workshops. My work has appeared in various journals, including "Allegro Magazine", "Indigo Rising", "Literary Yard" and "The American Journal of Poetry". My favorite soda is Pepsi- and I'm sticking to it!

THE DATE IN THE NEXT BOOTH

JASON VISCONTI

Back and forth they sway among their horses,

A ride made of a penny and a tent,

Until the merry-go-round should find my feet,

But my turn is not tonight’s amusement,

And if I climbed on I'd be tossed.
