Wistful Creek

Low in this season
           each terrace a saucer
         trickling green tea
           spilt by an unwieldy waiter.

Clumsy,
            treading over damp stones 
          balanced tray on upturned hand
           skipping over black puddles 
         that breed mosquitoes.

Aspens --
         peeling white bark 
         (peeling bleached wallpaper)
      filter light 
      through yellow leaves --

Stand 
                   an appropriate distance 
               one from the other 
                as people who wait outside 
            a crowded diner

Must.
