America

In a
country
where
one
is never
too young

to learn
how to
look up
to
America

and
all things
American

even
the
restaurants
in Japan

join in
a love story
unlike
no other

and
serve up
children's
lunches
and
dinners

with
an
American
flag
hoisted
on top

of the
custard
pudding

Houte Couture

Not
only

is it
cheaper

than flying
to France

for
a meal

but
the menu
is

Only
in
French









so
most people
in Japan

will not
be able
to read
it

Expertise

Prof Y
is rated
as the
top gun

in his
language
department
but

never talk
to him
about
literature
as he

probably
has not
read

a poem
or
novel



in
twenty
years

which is
of course

OK

as
literature
has nothing
to do

with
language
or
language
study

Eating
Out


The
hamburger
looked
delicious

and
I
was

ready
to start
eating

when
the
waiter
brought
sweet raison
bread



then
sweet orange
bread

and
then

three or four
sweet breads

Oh
where
has
the baguette
gone?

I
wondered

Luck


Even

lucky
people

must
die
