Rob Schackne #212 - "A restaurant proposition"

"A restaurant proposition"


A restaurant proposition
has all the tables in a row
the eaters are nonchalant
ordering from a slim volume
of old poems they recite
from their fans or panels
a curvaceous Chinese girl

treats the room to her display
around me they're looking
at what's generally happening
but stranger things than food

stranger than a lifetime later
a bicycle barely carried us
a car narrowly missed us

it seemed to last for hours
never mother's old recipe
