we were there a few years ago with my Russian class. A guy was hanging

around the table where we were sitting, trying to pick up one of the women in

our group.

I was in Hong Kong ...... I was eating in this Cantonese style

fast food restaurant and this large poster was on the wall featuring an

actual photograph of this peculiar looking fowl.

I have no idea what the poster said but I think the whole idea behind it was

to make the viewer hungry. Anyway, I didn't order it but I thought it was

worth a doodle on my napkin.

As I slowly, make my way, through the doors of the sad and gloom
The waitress comes and hand me a drink, a drink, where sorrow looms

This place is all secluded, from all whom else can see
A place where I can sit and doodle, of stories of life, and me

I need no pads of paper, on the table sits a stack
Of freshly place and folded napkins, to pen my life's heartaches

I need no tape-recorders, I always keep close by
A napkin for my poetic verse, under the drink, that I have cried

As the smoked-filled room, clouds my mind, I write, how love has parted
My words are soft and somber, though inked, from the broken hearted

And when my nights are ending, my verses turn to song
Such peaceful words, telling the world, what its like to be alone

So now I abandon my verses, my words of love and grace
And make my way, to the door, to leave this smoked-filled place

Just when I know, someone will find, my ink of love so rash
The waitress comes and cleans the room, and those napkins, go in the trash

But every once in a while, yet a great little while, you'll see some verses=20
shown
They publish and print, what a waitress has sent, and they mark the poet,=20
unknown!
