He licks the knife. Having breakfast with his old neighbor is a welcome surprise. He signals the waitress over for a refill of coffee. Sticks out his
mug. There are so many questions he wants to ask about his ex-wife but
realizes he must appear nonchalant. He has been watching. He knows
her boyfriend. Has followed him. Knocked over his garbage cans,
punctured his tire, stolen his mail, called the Children's Aid Society and made
a false report. Now his daughters no longer see him. He taught them to sing
"Your Cheatin' Heart.."
He stabs at the yolk repeatedly.

    clear if you thought of Hopper.
