Serving Girls

image borrowed from shawna

Serving Girls

ginger bite and tingle
tongue cleansed

eight-piece tempura plate
chopstick scraped, chaotic

crop of hibachi knives
in wait

ingredients outside

stringed fingers, forgotten
acorn hair worn straight

beneath the Asian hood—
guise of sliced geisha
