The Lost Lunch—A small food group

It was early on a Saturday afternoon.

I don’t know who ate, drank and smoked here.

I don’t know who left these things here.

But these items were there in the gutter, by a storm drain.

And if you want to know the truth,

these are three of the four food groups in Sanya.

I’m not certain, but if I had to guess I’d say

the fourth food group

is pain.
