lincoln does this

a found poem

He visits
the immigrant owner
of the Thai Little Home
in Chicago


as a gesture of reverence

puts out
a complete Thai meal
every morning
next to
a small statue
of Lincoln
on the bar

the business goes up,
never down,
no matter what.

He tells the author

Lincoln does this.

Found in William Grime's review of Andrew Ferguson's new book Land of Lincoln, in yesterday's New York Times.

p.s. According to MetroMix, the Thai Little Home Cafe has relocated to Arlington Heights.
