We hit the House of Lee.
As usual, my friend eyes
the Korean girl
behind the counter.

Ol' girl is tight
he says
when we find a table
out of earshot.
Probably got a boyfriend
in the kitchen
who'll kung-fu
my ass.

I shrug,
the sweet and sour
over my crab rangoon.
Yeah, she's all right

He breaks open
his cookie while
we wait.
The paper inside reads

you will find happiness
with a new love

and the situation presents itself
without mercy
as she approaches
from across the room
with two steaming plates
of saucy
deep-fried bird and rice
the question
will there be anything else
parked on her tongue.
