They’ve got bamboo and floating roses on a table
And specials written on a board in colored marker
Solitary people eat Thai food

Umbrellas with pretty flowers line the ceiling
Silver painted bulbs hanging through provide the light
Where solitary people eat Thai food

Kids ignore their “Japanese French Fries”*
And watch the fish swim with their neon plants
But don’t bang or tap on the glass
You might scare them

There’s jewelry for sale
Hanging on the fabric on the back wall
Best of all the menu's like a book
I like the Pad Thai (with chicken, of course)

*I overheard a conversation between a man and his son. The son asked, "Dad, what are those?" pointing to the bean sprouts. The father replied, "Those are Japanese french fries."
