Lunchtime in Rena’s

(Written in 1985)



 

Eating lunch in Rena's Delicatessen
I see faces here...I once knew...
remaining anonymous in the crowd…

And herein lies the delicate lesson
wherein the face is familiar, but the self enshrouds
persons with which I no longer have to do…

I could reveal—puff up my chest
if only for the ego to show
yes, I remember them from memories laid to rest…

My mind—the spirit does quicken
their thoughts and actions to know
which betray motives under thin skin

Ah...so my lunch is now over
And I pass by the faces I once knew
remaining anonymous in the crowd...
