God bless

We went for Thai

The first time since we moved here

It was the classic

A strip mall unit

Nestled between wine bars, dog baths, taco shops

Pink walls, plastic bamboo

A dish of multi-colored candy at the counter


Celine Dion was playing over the speakers

American Idol,

Closed caption on,

Was playing out on the giant screen

In front of our table


Lenora was mesmerized

Forking in her Pad See Ew

Without ever looking down

Oliver ate only rice

And kept asking for salsa


It was one of those times

Where we could only look at each other

And form the words together

God bless
