Rob Schackne #396 - "I feel a little scattered"

I feel a little scattered
and rather sure it wasn't me
in a Japanese restaurant last night
speaking pretty decent Japanese

(returned after forty years away)
didn't she once say beware
the power of self-delusion

I recall the laughter that it caused
Shanghai doesn't much like Japan
I hold my few languages lightly
love their TV show Midnight Diner
and now we are in China
they are Japanese and we talk 
about the real way to make tonteki
damn it I think I'll write some poems
