    Unnoticeable waiters pad lightly over bamboo floors

    Carrying platters of sushi.



    We eat edamame, plucking moist soybeans out of salty shells and

    Licking our lips with mild satisfaction.



    Salt crystals shine infinitely small on our lips,

    A tongue slips out of her scarlet mouth,



    My eyes float up to hers with slight vulnerability,

    Her fair skin glows under the overhanging lantern,



    She smiles her beautiful wide cheeks,

    A perfect row of pearls glimmering between her salty lips,



    I’ve met her once before, at a party with friends,

    She is a sylph or water nymph, some species of fantasy.



    The unseen waiter arrives at our table

    With a boat of tiger prawns and a roll of tekka makki,



    Her lips curl around the golden tempura,

    She chews in mysterious small bites.



    Savoring the raw fish and rice in my mouth,

    I see the crispy hard shell of the shrimp tail



    Disappear into hers. On her face, a look of resilience,

    The tough child possessed by sea-secrets from her native land.

    Chris...........although I am a lover and a writer in rhyme........Your verses bring back mouth watering memories of my love for Orential food. I enjoyed the read.
