Poet deVine asked for suggestions for something we could do for National Poetry Month (see Suggestion Box). I suggested a few things, including giving your poetry away locally, but anonymously.
To that end and just as a little warm-up to test the waters, I scatched off this little bit a couple of evenings ago as I was having something to eat at the Dong Khanh, in a city I do not frequent. I think it speaks for itself, drivel tho' it may be. I had never before seen this young woman who was so energetically tending the tables, and I probably never will again. I left this for her, written on a little note book sheet wrapped around my tip, and then walked out the door. It was a bit of a rush . . . turning my back and walking away, never to know what reaction it might have gotten.
Try something like this in April, you might enjoy it.
If I owned a place like this
I'd hire you away
I could serve most any dish
Because you'd make the day
Hustle is your middle name
The place would come to some fame
cuz "The dishes are all hot"
