There’s both food for the body and for the soul.
"Need a poem written?" said Houston.
Groceries may be what your shopping’s about but your poem will be ready by the time you check out.
"Poems while you shop? Need a poem written?" said Houston.
Poems about anything says Zach Houston’s sign.
"Love and motorcycles? Oh man." said Houston.
