BUSINESS CARD FROM A BURMESE RESTAURANT

Folder: 
SILLY PHILLY

 

I ate at a Burmese restaurant

in Chinatown

and had a decent meal

nice and spicy

just the way I like it

 

I grabbed a couple business cards

so I could remember

where it was

and just because

I like business cards

 

Now I am sitting

in work using the card

as a bookmaker

and someone notices

a phone number written on back

 

So now everyone wants to know

who Robin is

but I have no idea

I don’t remember meeting Robin

or procuring (hopefully) her digits

 

Maybe it was already on the card

or maybe I was that drunk

that I don’t remember

although I don’t usually carry books

when I get loaded

 

It remains a mystery

I’m almost tempted

to just call the number

to find out for sure

 

It’s just that I wouldn’t

for the life of me

know what I should say

or where I should begin
