BELLINGEN

BY DONALD DELLEY

The thing about Bellingen

is you that you can’t

go to a fine restaurant

and be served by

an anonymous waiter

who you don’t give

a damn about

and who doesn’t give a damn about you

 

You can’t go to

a fine restaurant

where an anonymous waiter

serves the finest food

cooked by someone you don’t know

who has won great accolades’

and who only cares

about fine cuisine

 

The trouble with Bellingen

is that the anonymous waiter

is a friend

you can’t complain to

if the food is not quite right

like the fine food

your used to

in those smart city restaurants

with anonymous two hats.

 

The trouble with Bellingen

is that the anonymous waiter

you used to flat with

or you’ve dated his sister

or even his ex-wife

or you know him from somewhere

now just where do I know him from?
