Ramen Tatsu-ya

My sister, alex and I

 -- at Ramen Tatsu-ya--

Waited in line struggling

Japanese on the menu

Miso this, miso hot

We just went with whatever miso we got


Food came quickly

Looking at the soup,

It was an egg

We began eating

Satisfaction, until...


Alex grabbed an edamame

Munch, munch, munch

The bean flew , she gasped

I traced the bean hoping to find where it went

The lady next to us wondering too


I burst out laughing

Regaining my composure

I can’t..

Alex kept mouthing “where did it go?”

A tilt to the right where the lady sat,

I make a sign with my hands


This poem is about: 
My family
