Chinese New Year
catch a ride
on the hostess’ bodice.
You shave splinters from your chopsticks and
watch the waiter caress pancakes
with plum sauce.
This short poem was previously posted a few weeks ago as part of a Monday Morning Writing Prompt in anticipation of the Chinese New Year which begins February 3, 2011.
