Olympic Teriyaki 3.12.2001

i pass by sometime late

and look in

small and shabby

dark

reminds me of a subway for some reason

maybe the fourescents

incredibly lonely

like a subway at four in the morning

the windows catch neon

teriyaki beef bowl

korean letters elsewhere

theres a couple man and woman no one is here

except for this couple

her head on his shoulder they sit at a window table

as i pass by looking in

they're all alone

but I'm almost sure they don't feel lonely

her head is on his shoulder

he's reading something as he eats

she must be done I think

i think her eyes were closed but I cant be sure

they don't speak but her head is resting on his shoulder makes me stop and stare

like zoo animals

desolate numb fluorescence

almost flashing in pulsing or flashing and

humming

so cheap and shitty

the place is almost dark

like a subway

but there's this couple

her head is on his shoulder

she looks like she has it all i recognize traces of a smile she must be so happy

no one else is here but this couple

i cant move from where i stand

i just stare and wonder

Olympic Teriyaki

i cant believe whats happening here

in this place

in the middle of korea town

but somehow in the middle of nowhere

but this couple here alone in near dark

her head on his shoulder

they must love each other so much

i can tell she loves him

her head on his shoulder

i have to leave here

nothing else exists here but this couple

i watch through the dirty glass the plexi glass bulletproof

Korea town fades out

like it occasionally does rarely does

for one

the anonymous

un-named

and

something in everything

the lack of identity

or blankness

i think thats it

the blankness

her head on his shoulder

she must be so happy

she looks so happy

she must be

with her head like that

on his shoulder

in all this

or the lack of this

rather

whatever this is

the sidewalks

neon

korean security guards

parking lot attendant

unforgiving

the trash on the sidewalk olympic blvd

it comes back to the nothingness blankness

this couple kills all of it all of it

her head on his shoulder

eyes possibly closed

she must be so happy

how else could her head be on his shoulder here like that

she must be so happy

eyes possibly closed

what is she thinking i am thinking all i know is that she is so happy

none of this matters

darkness sinks o into my eyes

like a meat grinder

more of it

neon signs help a little

suggesting

a cheap plaza Korea town plaza stores

i passed by several

korean soup places

a liquor mart

some kind of meat store

with nothing else in it

something I've never seen before

this is Korea Town

all these empty strip malls

the same lighting as the rest

subway lighting

imperceptibly fast pulsing almost

emanating cheapness subtly I walk away

alone

but strangely not lonely

and

alone

thinking about this couple

her head on his shoulder

so

alone

with her head on his shoulder
