WAITING TABLES IN RENO by Doug Draime

40 years ago
she left him
while he was
getting his
leg blown off
in Nam

Now,
here she was
waiting tables
in Reno – not even
recognizing him –
after she almost
fell over his
prosthetic leg

“Keep your leg
under the table, sir,
I could’ve fallen and
broken something.”

  1. Always, the sentimentalist, eh Doug?
