Poet’s corner: Andie’s

Gone, gone with the wash of time.

Another Auburn small city landmark.

Andie’s you were always handy

across the tracks on West Main.

A favorite eatery flavored

with mom and pop cooking

the taste of yesterday.

Andie’s you were dandy

a friendly place

you could bring the family

meet neighbors, mingle with friends.

And sassy-mouth waitresses

in their rough and gruff way

made you feel welcomed

as if you belonged

and soon

you felt that way way too.

– Gerald A. McBreen, city of Pacific poet laureate
