unsustainable

the first restaurant
where I worked was
a disaster from the start

the owner had dreamed
of a tea house but had
no idea how to run one

we closed on a Tuesday
without any warning
we should have seen it

since the dining room
never filled with people
but we kept cooking

after we closed the doors
we talked about all that
we could have said

or changed or done
but we just played along
until it all fell down

it’s one thing to watch
that happen to a tea house
it’s another to watch

it happen to my country

Peace,
Milton
